View Full Version : problem with using putty on debian
4th December 2006, 23:53
i have just gone though the prefect setup debian which was fine :) but when entering numbers by pressing the buttons on num pad with either the num pad locked or open in vi it puts letters up instead of number but as soon as i come out of vi and press the same on the command line it show numbers not letters.
any idea why this could be.

Did you choose the correct keymap during installation?

Do you use PuTTY? This sounds like a problem with your SSH client to me, not with your server.
