syntax on does work

 
Hi,
I am facing problem in turning on syntax.
It works with putty but does not work with xshell.

PS:"syntax on" is set in .vimrc

Thanks & Regards,

Syntax Highlighting is concerned with a terminal type(TERM) also.
Check if the terminal type of Xshell session properties and the terminal is xterm, linux etc.
VT100 can't do that.

Found it finally :-)
Issue was in the colors scheme i chose black on white.
so only black and white colors were shown.

Now i changed it to 'ANSI colors on white".


Thanks & Regards,
