Ubuntu's native Terminal not scrolling back through output on remote server

any idea why my terminal wouldn't have backscroll when i'm connected to the server?

Settings work as expected locally (scroll back 4,000 lines) but not at all when connected to a remote server.

After trying most of the results for 'terminal' in Ubuntu's package manager, i didn't have an answer to this question, but i did have a solution.

i installed konsole and all is well (i must have already done something that required the KDE dependencies, i guess, because it added nothing but Konsole to the system. And hid it under Applications > System tools but i can deal.

"SHOW TABLES" works a lot better when you can actually scroll back to see them all.
