When I am connected to my local Ubuntu dev server with putty (from my Windows 7 box) via SSH, the following key combinations don't work to move the cursor forward and backward on word boundaries:
- Ctrl+Left Arrow on the cursor pad
- Ctrl+Right Arrow on the cursor pad
The cursor only moves one character at a time. I'm using bash.
Alt+Fwill move backward/forward one word. You can change to vi bindings if you want and move by
