In the terminal on Solaris 5.9 (ksh), I don't see the characters when typing. I can see the input only after the return key is pressed. I checked terminal settings with stty -a it shows:

echo echoe echok -echonl -noflsh -echoprt echoctl echoke

meanwhile I have inspected stty -a on my linux box and it's the same:

echo echoe echok -echonl -noflsh -echoprt echoctl echoke

I know the stty -echo and stty echo can disable/enable echoing in the console. It did on my linux, but didn't affect anything on the Solaris terminal where I'm suffering the issue. So, what could it be?
