Linux - The "Luit" command


Under Linux (any version) we can use a terminal to establish communication between a client and a server when we connect through SSH.


There is a concern that often arises in this kind of communication, this is when the client encoding and server is not the same.

For example, if the client encoding is UTF-8 encoding and the server is ISO-8891-1, it will generate an incorrect display at your terminal.


The "Luit" command allows us to avoid such worries When connects linux /linux via SSH, as it converts the characters of both sides (client and server) and therefore the display will be correct.
  • For more details on the Linux command, type in your terminal:
    • Man Luit + Enter key and you have all the arguments of this command.
  • Example of the command "Luit"
    • Linux-Linux Connection Via SSH
      • Luit -encoding iso-8859-l ssh user@server
