      Release Notes: Passwords are no longer retained in memory by mistake. PSCP and PSFTP now honor nonstandard port numbers in SSH saved sessions. Fixes were made for spurious "Access denied" messages on GSSAPI authentication failures, for a file handle leak in Pageant, for a crash when saving a session, for misplaced underlines, and for incorrect vertical offset of VT100 line drawing characters.

            Re: someone using SuSe figured out "home" key & "end" key ?
            From the Windows client go to "Connection" (some versions to "Connection/Data") and change the "Terminal-type string" from "xterm" to "linux".

            After this, the HOME and END keys work properly when connecting to a Linux box.

            Hi,

            I encountered this same issue. Looking at the stty between the Redhat and SuSE boxes didn't help (settings were the same), but I found that if you leave your putty setting on standard and you change the TERM environment variable to "linux" (probably from xterm) that the home and end keys will work properly all over. Put it in the config file of your shell of choice and you should be good to go.

            Regards,

            someone using SuSe figured out "home" key & "end" key ?
            My home ket & end key work perfectly on both RH & CentOS boxes, from my XP box, but on my SuSE box teh home & end keys are ignored. I changed the setting in Putty from "standard" to "rxvt" and now the "home" key works, which is great, but he "end key prints a "7".

            The server shows me running "xterm" when I ask it from the command line, regardless of what I do in Putty.

            Any one know what could be different about RH & SuSe in this regard? any and all advice is most appreciated.

            Peace. Love. Linux.
