When I connect to my Linux server (Ubuntu 14.04) using putty I have some problems because the SSH-connection always uses
ANSI_X3.4-1968 as charset (output of
However my system is configured to use
de_DE.UTF-8 which can be seen by
The used connection profile of putty uses
UTF-8 as Remote character set (Window -> Translation). I also tried to use the value
de_DE.UTF-8 here, but there was no change.
The strange thing is that when I log in on the physical console an execute
locale charmap there I get the correct and expected result:
Why do I get different configured charsets using Putty (v0.67) and the physical console? Is this therefore a putty configuration problem, or is the problem on the linux server side?
I also compared the
/etc/pam.d/sshd with one from a second similar server that is not affected by this problem and both files were identical. The same is true for the file
/etc/ssh/ssh_config (both files contain the line
SendEnv LANG LC_*).
I also executed the following commands to make sure the locales are not defect:
sudo locale-gen --purge sudo update-locale LANG=de_DE.UTF-8
