Hello guys,

First of all thank you for this great project, busybox rocks!
Lately I've been experimenting with Alpine Linux and busybox flawlessly
all of my needs.

I'm having a small "comfort issue" with telnet client though.
I'm trying to connect to a Korenix 3005 switch through telnet for management
purposes, and all is well except for the backspace character - seems like my 
switch doesn't handle it too well and instead of erasing the last character
all it does is print some garbage to the screen.

I've had the same issue before while using putty, but saw a solution that
suggests to enable "Telnet special commands" in the options menu, and it

Is there a similar option/flag in busybox?
I've read a bit about these commands and it has something to do with replacing
the backspace character with some other special character...

Sorry if this isn't the appropriate place to post this question.

Thank you,
