We've had a couple of requests for PuTTY to transmit a terminal speed in SSH, as it already does for Telnet and Rlogin protocols.
Apparently server defaults in the absence of information from PuTTY
aren't always helpful; in particular, OpenSSH on HP-UX ends up at 300
baud(!), and this causes
invoke various emergency procedures (e.g.,
vi uses a
5-line display, and
emacs runs terribly slow to avoid
overloading the terminal).
As of 2004-04-25, PuTTY will send terminal speeds in SSH based on the same terminal-speed string as for other protocols (which has been moved to the Connection panel in the UI).
Currently there's no way to turn off the sending of terminal speeds in SSH (speeds are always sent). If anyone complains, we can change this.
