PowerTerm Interconnect - Win 10 via ssh to Linux server.

Hello Forum :

      I have been trying to set-up PowerTerm Interconnect for Windows on a Windows 10 laptop, using openssh, to connect to a CentOS 5.10 64-bit Linux server. I have previously set-up other users to login remotely to the server via ssh, but each of those users had Linux machines at home, so those worked right away. The user's account is set-up on the AllowUsers line in /etc/ssh/sshd_config, but when I try to login her account on PowerTerm, it returns "Unable to connect to host <user>@<IP address>".

       I tried going to an "Admin" Command Prompt, and doing "ssh -v <user>@<IP address>, and that logged her in, then immediately disconnected the session. Through trial and error, I figured out that was due to the TERM variable not being set. So, I executed a "set TERM=ansi", then retried the ssh -v command, and that allowed the account to login, and stay logged in. So that proves that ssh is working, on Win 10 no less, that the request is reaching the firewall, and through a specific firewall rule, is then sent to the Linux server. Unfortunately, this is just through the Win 10 command prompt, so it does not load any Function Keys, or have any of the other nice PowerTerm features.

    So what is different about the PowerTerm setup versus the command prompt? The ssh is configured for ssh-2, and I am using the default port 22, and I specified the id_rsa key, and the PowerTerm software converted that to the .epk extension.

      Any ideas would be most welcome. Thank-you.
