Linuxhelp _ Technical Support _ Function Keys in text console

Posted by: msillers Dec 12 2008, 04:17 PM

I'm looking for help with an issue that has recently come up in attempting to use ttylinux as a workstation to access a UNIX server application.

When sitting at the console, the F1 to F4 keys return A, B, C and D respectively. This carries over to the UNIX server when connecting using dropbear. Unfortunately, the application makes a lot of use of these keys.

If I ssh into the ttylinux workststation using putty, the function keys behave as expected.

Can anyone shed any light onto how to remedy this situation?
