Hi all,

I've just set up an SSH server and got my friend an account. He logs in using PuTTY, but PuTTY becomes irresponsive when he issues some commands. Sometimes "ls -la" works, sometimes it crashes PuTTY. I've also tried the command-line "ssh" for Windows (from msysGit) and the same thing happens.

When we use tmux, I can see what he types after his PuTTY crashes, but he can't issue commands for some reason.

What could that be? Where should I look up for more information about the problem?

Many thanks,
n2

I don't know much about putty, but maybe it is the terminal sequences for colors that make it stop displaying.
You could try playing around with TERM settings, or work around it by disabling color (for instance, make an ls alias with --color=never).
