comment Backspace Acting like Enter in Bash
I see that it shows: erase = DEL, but the Delete button adds a ~ to the line. I'm not sure that is what is meant by: erase = DEL though.

comment Backspace, Tab not working in terminal (using ssh)
Occasionally mine does it too. But my backspace is acting like my return (Enter) key. @gopi1410, you're not the only one with this issue +1 for the question!

comment What File Transferring Method (i.e. FTP) Can I Use for rlogin (Solaris 8 on SPARC)
is the title better? I'm looking at rcp now, but is talking about: Copies files between a Windows XP computer and a system running rshd. I don't have ssh or rsh on this machine, only rlogin.

What about on SPARC, as when I tried svcs ssh, it said svcs: not found. Is it different for SPARC?

My PuTTY wasn't using the correct IP address as I thought it was. I had to change it, as my Network Admin told me to change my IP addresses.

comment Changing the IP Address in Solaris 11
Thank you for the answer, but I have just tried this on the interface version (using Terminal) and I got this returned: ipadm: cannot create address: Persistent operation on temporary object - What does that mean?

comment Changing the IP Address in Solaris 11
Thank you @Mat. I have given up trying, both myself and my colleague and I have tried. So he suggested I try from scratch and redo the installation ... at least from there I can configure it properly.

comment Changing the IP Address in Solaris 11
@Mat Well I carried on doing more research into this, and saw this to try: sudo #ifconfig hme0 10.0.11.10 netmask 255.0.0.0 up and it still didn't work. In fact it showed this error: ifconfig: could not create address: No such interface - Does that mean that the interface is wrong? What is the interface?

comment When a command is over half the terminal size it breaks
I am using PuTTY with all my Linux machines, like SCO and Ubuntu, and I just tried what you did @ACarter, and I didn't get any oddity. My PuTTY settings are default. So I am not sure if you might've changed something, or it could be an issue with how it is displaying for Raspbian.
