Set the title bar text when you SSH to a server in Debian 12 (and others)

If you are logged into multiple servers it is quite useful to have CLEAR text in the title bar showing which server is which.

In your ~/.bash_profile

PROMPT_COMMAND="echo -ne \"\033]0;$1 (Old)\007\""


PROMPT_COMMAND="echo -ne \"\033]0;$1 (New)\007\""

Now either log out and back in or run this command
source ~/.bash_profile
