Pinned topic AIX 7.1: PuTTY, screen and shell script run: backspace is not displayed

‏2013-01-29T15:18:26Z |
Hi,

I'm using PuTTY to connect to AIX 7.1 server.

Backspace is working correctly in bash shell window, and when running shell script (i.e. I can remove characters from "Tester")

  1. cat test.sh
echo "Enter name:"
read username
echo $username

  1. ./test.sh
Enter name:
Tester
Tester
#

But, when doing the same thing in screen, backspace effect is working, but the result is not displayed. I.e.

  1. screen -S testing
  2. ./test.sh
Enter name:
Tester <---pressing backspace twice
Test
#

Any idea what settings I need to modify to make this work?

BR,
Timo
