4:49 PM
anyone know what could be going on where whenever I log into any arista switch I get an n character on my prompt
Some other people at my company are reporting the same issue but others are not. If I log in with TERM=vt100 ssh switch I don't get it but I do get it with xterm or xterm-256colors but most other people are using xterm or xterm-256colors and about half of them don't get it
doesn't happen with juniper switches or logging into linux hosts
 
5:24 PM
so the switch is sending ESC[5n which appears to be a vt100 escape sequence
but I still don't understand how it works with xterm for some but not others, I may have enough to ask a question though
