First of all I’d like to thank noc for his kind help.
Those who experience any problems on remote terminals - not working command line history and|or editing, not being able to run vp or vedit editors etc. - look for three gotchas.
- In the boot-image you should declare TERM=qnx
- In the /etc/config/sysinit.NODE you should have the consoles and terminals set to the sane state:
[b]Dev.pty -nN &
Dev.con -nM &
- In the /etc/default/login you may put TERM=qnx too.
After I’ve done all that myself - I’ve got the luxury of using mqc or vp, full access to command line history, etc., when logged in via SSH or telnet even from windoze machine (with terminal answer-back set to xterm).
