Remote Login- Tru64 Unix 5.1B

When I login in remotely, ie...telnet xxx.xxx... When I use the backspace key I receive the characters ^H^H. Anyway to resolve this problem?

Default erase character is -h while using telnet. What you see is the representation of DEL. Don't think you can change this behaviour in the 'default' entry of /etc/gettydefs.

Use CTRL + Backspace instead or try
# stty erase ^H

Hi,

stty erase "^H"

should do it.
Alternatively you can setup your terminal emulation.

Would it be better to set up the terminal emulation?

Use the command:

$stty erase "^h"
