I experience terminal emulation issues when connecting to Solaris (I use the same tools to connect to Linux and have never had a problem). For example, vi acts erratically when the term is set to cygwin or vt100. What do others do to solve this, and do you have to add terminfo for those cases (vt100, cygwin)? If so, where are you getting the terminfo?
Any pointers would be helpful. I use bash on Solaris 10 x64 (sunfire x4240) and have exported the TERM variable as both cygwin (which is default when using cygwin ssh to connect) and vt100. For example, in vi, the delete key changes case (in other words, it's mapped as ~). I'd love to have more control and understanding on these emulation issues. I connect with both XP and Vista and see the same issues (cygwin shell with cygwin ssh, and command shell with cygwin ssh).
