I installed Gow and am using plink to SSH into remote servers. The problem is, when I attempt to edit a file remotely with Vim, it doesn't utilize the entire screen's space. I changed the original command prompt's size via View > Console Window but that changed nothing.
Also, the escape key isn't sent to the remote server. So it's nearly impossible to edit files (I've had to use the old Ctrl+[ trick in Vim to get out of editing mode).
Another oddity is that if I am on the last line in the window, and attempt to go down one line in the buffer, it only updates the last line. The above text doesn't get updated.
When I attempt to use PuTTY (on its own), that is included with Gow, it works fine. When I attempt to use Vim locally it also works fine. Maybe there's some command that I need to send to plink? OR maybe there is something I would set in the .vimrc file? I was able to force the window size of Vim (on the remote server) by setting 'set lines=50' and 'set columns=180' but this is not ideal. And the single line scrolling issue is also still there.
