Hi Guillaume,

somehow I let your email sit in my inbox for a long time :-( Let me copy the tramp-devel mailing list, they might have other ideas. I'm a little out of touch with Tramp.

The shell connection established by Tramp is not intended for interactive use. The idea is that Tramp itself uses it in the background to transfer the files and to get a list of directories for filename completion and suchlike. So from that perspective, I think shell history is not needed -- the Emacs built-in history of C-x C-f and the like should be sufficient.

But maybe I'm misunderstanding what you are trying to do.

Hi Kai,

I saw your email address in tramp-sh.el, hope it is ok.

I am using emacs 24.4 and have the following issue : there is no history when connecting to a remote shell via tramp, and $HISTFILE says /dev/null.

Do you have any tip that I could use to make history work (it works for local shells) ?

I am using plain bash and have no special configuration.

Thanks for your help,
