Thanks very much Kevin ( and Jesse ) for your helpful and quick responses!

That's much better!

My first attempt at creating the .profile file was a fail, (garbage in my
terminal session after login) I'd guess it's a ccsid thing as I created in
from the iSeries using edtf.

Running bash worked though.

best regards,
C

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,
Craig
