What happens to input from keyboard when SSH into computer?

Asked by

I have a computer that is in a remote location. I have a program running on that computer that reads system input from a keyboard.

Now, the system works if I try it at my local computer; it reads from the keyboard. However, when I run the program through SSH on the remote computer, I can type into the program (through) SSH and that works. If I use the physically connected keyboard, however, the program does not read from the keyboard.

I don’t know what causes this, and therefore, not how to fix it either.

What are you actually trying to achieve? Are you trying to SSH into a remote machine and run a program that reads what is typed on a keyboard attached physically to the remote machine, e.g. by USB?
