I cannot use the up and down arrow keys when I sftp from fc5->fc5.
It would be good if sftp supported readline.
Comment 1 Miloslav Trmač 2007-03-28 06:56:11 EDT
Thanks for your report.

readline is under GPL, which is incompatible with the OpenSSL license.

sftp can use libedit if present, however libedit is currently in Fedora Extras
and thus not available for Fedora Core packages yet.  This should change in
Fedora 7.
Comment 2 Tomas Mraz 2007-09-07 02:52:14 EDT
libedit will be enabled in openssh-4.7p1-1.fc8
