I'm encountering an annoying issue. When I'm connecting to a Linux VM through my terminal by ssh, I don't have tab completion, or I can't navigate through my past commands with the directional arrows.

Do you have any idea on how to fix the cumbersome problem? Is it linked with the configuration of my terminal? Here is the output of the env command:

TERM_PROGRAM=Apple_Terminal
SHELL=/bin/bash
TERM=xterm-256color
TMPDIR=/var/folders/7m/9zh3pls10rd37f0bf1zgqtwm0000gn/T/
Apple_PubSub_Socket_Render=/private/tmp/com.apple.launchd.jILyAJx9OV/Render
TERM_PROGRAM_VERSION=421.1
TERM_SESSION_ID=BB429A67-27F3-4A50-A891-DD5F15C2E2D9

Thanks!

Tab completion etc is configured in the shell, not in Terminal. So if you miss that functionality when logging in into a remote system you need to configure it in the shell you are running there.
