Got back to use windows…

Use putty ssh to Unix server.

Tab completion, up-down arrow history are not working. I thought the putty configuration is not correct.  One hour tuning the config, not working. Then I realized maybe the shell is not bash…

Echo $0

Wtf ksh is… Ancient shell language.

Uname gives AIX… No wonder. IBM machine.

Now the solution is clear. “chsh” to find the available shells. Luckily bash is available in “/use/bin/bash”. Add “/usr/bin/bash” to the first line of ~/.profile.

Mission complete!
I am expecting more troubles using windows and AIX…
