When telneting to a windows host from a linux guest, attempts to use the backspace key leads to odd characters being output - and nothing being deleted.
Is there something to get the windows telnet service to behave "normally" for this key press?
I am using the /usr/bin/telnet client - from an FC17 machine, from a bash session in GNOME Terminal 126.96.36.199. The $TERM variable is xterm.
If I telnet from another windows machine to the server, I don't see the same behaviour - so there must be some setting in the client.
