Getting PUTTY to draw line correctly

This is a shameful direct copy of the information from this link. To make it all work right, you need to twiddle the following configuration settings: Terminal → Keyboard: Change the sequences sent by: The Functions keys and Keypad: Select Linux. Window → Appearance: Font settings: Pick a font that contains the Unicode line drawing characters, such as Andale Mono or Lucida Console. (Unfortunately Vista’s gorgeous new Consolas font does not have those.) Window → Translation: Character set translation on received data: Select UTF-8. Adjust how PuTTY handles line drawing characters: Select Use Unicode line drawing code points. Connection → Data: Terminal details: Terminal-type string: Enter “linux”. Now line drawing characters should show up as they are supposed to. ~ts~
