Subject: [IBMiOSS] SSH from mac

Hi All,

apologies in advance if this is a stupid question...

When I run SSH from terminal in my mac to IBMi, it works fine but when I try to repeat commands with arrow up (for example) I just get some control characters e.g ^[[A

Typing /qopensys/pkgs/bin/python3 ..... gets old fast.

Presumably I need to do some setup / config somewhere?

thanks kindly in advance,
