backspace key in telnet "works"
 
The backspace key in telnet does not function correctly. If there is a character on the cursor it will do the same as the delete key, but it will not move to the left after depressing the key. It works just fine in the console (Slackware 11.0, 2.4.33.3)

Not even sure where to begin!

TIA

It's a workaround more than a solution, but try Ctrl-H instead.

That does work! :)

Still have no idea how to make telnet recognize that key. I was doing some reading and some applications simply can't be "fixed" and you just have to deal with those requirements.
