new install of AIX 4.3.3, ESC key not working

new install of AIX 4.3.3, ESC key not working

Post by Chri » Sun, 22 Dec 2002 00:20:44

When I telnet or use Exceed to connect via ethernet, and I hit the ESC
key on my XP professional PC, it sneds a ^] to the std output, instead
of being a normal esc key, my arrow keys and function keys send
strange controll charecters as well. This makes VI, Smit, etc
impossible to use.

I get the same results using hyper terminal going into the serial

When I issue a shutdwon -Fr, it comes back up with the following:

I've tried setting to several different options and configured the
hyper terminal session the same.  Still behaves the same.

This is a 7043-150, with no graphics card, running AIX 4.3.3

Any suggestions?




1. Telnet from AIX 1.2 -> ESC key sends two ESC's

When doing a telnet from the console on a PS/2-80 running AIX 1.2, hitting
the ESC key sends two ESC's to the remote session.  Hitting one of the
functions key, e.g. F1, the first ESC of the F1 sequence is only send once.
How can I make the ESC key send only one ESC to the remote session.
