I use putty to log in to my RH7.0 server. I've set terminal as xterm on the
ssh client. I get colours in ssh. If term is set to vt100 I do not get
colours. Further colours in ls etc is enabled with the --color-tty option
using alias. Check that also out.

Subject: Re: [Ilugc] color over ssh
From my debian desktop I ssh over to a remote solaris server. One of...
the disappointing things about this setup is I see everything as black
and white. For e.g. a gnu ls --color does not give color but only
various shades of black and white.
