Default Unable to scroll through directory contents with Scroll Lock key

When logged in to an ftp server i use the dir command to view the contents of a folder. But I cannot scroll up and down using the Scroll Lock key. I am using Swedish keyboard layout. Note that I am not using X so I am not able to scroll with the mouse. What is wrong?

Thanks in advance/

I do not understand the question, are you trying to say you're using ftp(1) from an OpenBSD console? i.e: wscons.. outside of X?

Scrolling works by pressing shift+page-up/down, same as the behaviour in xterm(1).

The scroll lock has no effect on OpenBSD, at least, outside of X.. but the driver will change the state of the keyboard LED to reflect it.

Did I understand you?
Good luck.
