system info:
Oracle Database 10g

when I use my X terminal to connect to the server and use sqlplus I have no problems, but I have started using SSH and find that when I try to use the backspace or delete key that I get control characters appearing Eg

SQL> this ^H

I thought that stty erase and pressing the right key would replace this ... but it seems not. From long ago I seem to recall there was some settings for the sqlplus command line behaviour but I just can't recall them

from the ssh window (where I have the problem)
$ echo $TERM


from the X server window (which works fine)
$ echo $TERM


thanks :-)

See Ya
(when bandwidth gets better ;-)
