When I open a PuTTY session in full screen I can't scroll down and up properly with the down arrow key. It seem to move down the screen and gets stuck somewhere in the middle.

When I open PuTTY in small window it works fine for scrolling down or up. But still when I use l key or right arrow key to move right it seems to delete characters and move with tabs.

    sounds like an encoding problem to me. what's your local encoding, what does putty use for an encoding and what is the actual encoding on the remote machine? – Bananguin Oct 21 '13 at 6:41
  • It only problem for AIX server it wokrs fine on other servers.I dont know where to check encoding for the remote machine. – munish Oct 21 '13 at 6:49

It's to do with your terminal on the aix server. You can check your terminal with

env|grep -i term

man resize should help too. Does just typing resize reflect your correct putty size?
