I have a problem with the configuration of a SLIP
connection between a Windblows client machine and
a Linux machine (Debian 2.0). The Linux machine
does not recognize backspaces, amonng other special
characters, and when I list files solid rectangle
characters and square brackets are placed before and
after the file names. This is a pain. Oh, "other special
characters" includes carriage returns.
I've tried a variety of modem config, including what should
work for Linux (8 bit, no parity, 1 bit stop). I have also
tried a variety of terminal emulations.
I hope this is clear. Please help. I have spent a lot of
time on this.
