Editor to use with ssh'ing into NT server?

I can't get an editor to work correctly when I ssh into NT server.  I get 

Vim: Warning: Output is not to a terminal
Vim: Warning: Input is not from a terminal

I have set TERM to just about everything I can think of


but I do not get any better results.

vim starts up, but the keyboard mappings are wrong.  I can't use esc to get
into command mode, i for insert, I can't scroll down in the file (you just
see the first 12 or so lines).  What are you all using to edit via an ssh
connection into the nt boxes?  Certainly there is some easy fix to this, no
(i.e., ssh option, variable setting, etc.)?
