AIX 4.3.3 IBM RS/6000 7025-F50.  Terminal is an Info Window II3153

When using my console and I type a command, SMIT for example,  the console doesn't clear, all the previous characters are mixed into what's displayed.  It's unreadable for the most part.  The console is physically connected to the server.

When I use a terminal emulator (Reflections) to access the server remotely, the screen clears the previous information and displays only the new information.  I can read everything normally.

AIX/Unix newbie and this is really making learning difficult.

Thanks!
