Can't get "|" (pipe character)

On all linux, unix host that i connect i can't get the "|" (pipe) character.
I tried various config options without success, my $LANG is correct because when i connect using another terminal program it works fine.

I've installed the latest available version of Xmanager 2.1 on friday and I still have this problem, even though the version of Xshell seems later than the one specified in this posting (the version that is installed is 1521). Do I have to downgrade the version of Xshell I have to 1502 ?

To be able to type "|"(bar) in the UK keyboard, you need to use UK 102 keyboard (uk102.xkb) for Xmanager Keyboard Settings. Please refer to the following site for more information.


Thank you for using Xmanager.
