Can't get special characters to display correctly

Hey guys.. having a problem getting SecureCRT to display ANSI graphics correctly. When I run a command that generates lines, it shows as garbeled text. For example, running lsblk doesnt show the lines correctly. If I run it from my OSX terminal (SSH'd in to the same machine) it shows correctly.

Here is a screenshot showing both SecureCRT and OSX Terminal:

Any suggestions on how to get this to render properly?

THanks!

Hi cubedroot,

What terminal emulation is configured in the Terminal / Emulation category of Session Options?

If anything other than Xterm, what are the results if you choose Xterm and disconnect/reconnect?

Additionally, in the Terminal / Appearance category of Session Options, you will likely need to configure UTF-8 as the character encoding and enable Use Unicode graphics characters.

If you need to make this change to many (or all) sessions, see these tips on our website:

BAM! Set my character encoding to UTF-8 and reconnected.....working perfectly!

It was on "default". I will apply this to all my sessions now.

Thanks again!
