I just ran across this informative post by Jonathan Tron that solved an annoyance I've had for a while: backspace not doing what I want when I use SSH.
Change your Terminal Preferences
- In Terminal, select Preferences | Settings | Advanced.
- Select ‘Delete sends Ctrl-H'
You may need to do this again if you change your terminal style.
Specify a setting for nano
- On your server open ~/.nanorc
- Add ‘set rebinddelete'
And now you should have backspace working correctly for at least a few things…
