Using the "@" character in vsp session on a BL460c's iLO via ssh

Discussion in 'HP' started by Karsten Heymann, Jul 6, 2009.

  1. Hi,

    I'm currently exploring the possibilities of managing HP BL460c blades
    via the ssh iLO Access, especially the virtual serial port, to
    administrate some linux servers. Most things work fine, but one small
    but annoying struggle is that I cannot enter the "@" key in a vsp
    session. All other characters seem to work fine, even special german
    ones like öäü. We use the german keyboard layout where @ is ALTGR+q,
    and we can enter it on the iLO commandline itself. But inside the VPS
    session entering @ works as "delete to start of line". On the server
    side we use 'getty 115200 ttyS0 vt320' to create the serial console.

    Any hints on this one? I already read c00263709.pdf and c00294268.pdf,
    but could not find anything helpful. If any information is missing,
    please ask, I'll try to provide it.

    Yours
    Karsten

    I'm not sure this is related but on HP-UX, "@" is the default line kill
    char. And you need to use stty to change it.
