It means you probably need to copy a termcap entry for xterm into the
server's /etc/termcap. If you have a vt100 entry, you may be able to get
away with just that, by setting the TERM environment variable to vt100
instead of xterm. Or, you may be able to use the xterm TERM setting, by
modifying the first bit of the vt100 entry from something like this:

  vt100|vt100-am|dec vt100:\


  xterm|vt100|vt100-am|dec vt100:\

(that is, add the xterm in there).
