Tab completion is a facility of the shell running on the remote computer
surely, nothing to do with ssh itself.
e.g. I ssh into my home PC from work and I get tab completion, because my
shell at home is bash with completion set up. This would also be the case
if I were to use telnet or rlogin to connet.
If it was sh or cmd.exe I wouldn't, regardless of whether I used ssh or
telnet or rlogin, because sh and cmd.exe don't support it.
Or am I misunderstanding the question?
