Hello Pia and Erik,

Thanks for your responses. I am searching some technique where I don't
need to do any modification on remote server as I have to maintain a no.
of remote server. I got 2 solution.

#1.  In local box

` ` `
` ` `


In debian lenny box the screen version does not have the problem.

But #1 actually set the TERM environment in local box. Is not there any
command option in screen to set TERM just for screen session and not
globally ? I have tried with "screen -T xterm" but found the cursor is
not working properly with vim; where setting TERM environment locally
solved the issue. Any workaround with "screen -T" ?
