putty cygterm on windows
Putty is a reasonably good enough replacement for “cmd” and the out of the box terminal that comes with cygwin. If you follow these steps below, you’ll get a terminal with these features:
Then run putty -cygterm – and you’ll get a bash shell(if that’s what’s in /etc/passwd) running against your local machine, without ssh.
Now run “screen”
You may notice that the title doesn’t reflect the current screen session. I have found that I had to add the following to /etc/screenrc
termcapinfo xterm 'hs:ts=\E]2;:fs=07:ds=\E]2;screen07'hardstatus string "[screen %n%?: %t%?] %h"
Be sure that if you use .screenrc, that your .screenrc uses unix line endings(dos2unix).
