netscape's backspace problem

Post by Jay Ts » Tue, 01 Aug 1995 04:00:00

I know this problem has been addressed numerous times before but could
anyone tell me how to make the backspace key function like a backspace
instead of the delete in netscape?  Thanks in advance.  Any help is

1. telnet to linux Backspace work; rsh xterm Backspace don't work

   Hi there,
subject say it. If I log into our linux-machine (SUSE 6.0) via telnet or

rlogin I have no problems working with the Backspace and Delete key, but

I see inverted characters if I do an ls -la or an man.

If I do a rsh -n linux.machine -l hl xterm -display ...... -T ....
(what I prefer) I have no problems with inverted character and man
worked all well, BUT the Backspace and Delete key give me an ~

Which screw I have to turn, that the Backspace key worked. What I tried
was stty erase '^C' and stty erase '^?' but nothing worked....

any hint...

thanks a lot
