Solaris backspace key issue problem and solution

Q.When you telnet from Solaris 9 to other UNIX box the backspace key does not work. This is not at all convenient to me. How do I fix this issue?

A. You need to use tty command which is use to change and print terminal line settings.
Type the following commands:

$ stty intr
$ stty erase
$ stty echoe

Now your backspace key should work.
