Terminal EMulation Behaviour

I am getting word wrap and emulation strange behaviours. I assume it is just a setting or two.

I am running 4.4.0-31-generic GNU/Linux and the terminal emulation is xterm

I have the following issues:

1. Reach a certain width and the line wraps back to the same line, sometimes the up arrow also just overwrites ontop of the line there rather than starting fresh. It makes it very hard to type long commands. I have tried using more columns, seems to improve a little but not much.

2. The screen just stops scrolling after a while

3. Backspace sometimes just deltes a line it has wrapped ontop of the existing.

I'm sure I have a setting wrong here.

Can you offer any suggestions please to help?

I am running SecureCRT 7.3.5 build 903

Many thanks in advance

Hi kaj0103,

SecureCRT is installed on a Linux OS?

What is the actual Linux OS? (Please provide output from /etc/os-release or /etc/release, whatever is appropriate for your OS.)

Since there will be many inquiries as to your Session Options configuration related to the three behaviors reported, please just send an email to and we will provide instructions on how you can provide the session INI file to us. Please use "Attn Brenda - Forum Thread #13303" in the subject line of the email.

Thanks for coming back to me.
I will do as you say later in your post.
In the meantime, it is installed on a Mac, the system i am administering is the OS i mention in the thread in the first few lines.
Many thanks
