Using telnet on local network

I have an old, old computer that has the ability to converse, more or less,

However that machine has huge diffs in the kayboard mapping when compared
to a modern 100+ key pc keyboard.
Is there a place where a translation table that would make a modern pc
keyboard be more compatible with this old machines expectations?
For instance, the pc keyboard backspace key is gibberish to the old
machine, while a ctrl+h works as expected. That is the sort of
translations I'd like to have done automatically if possible.
Is it? And if so, how?
I forget how to do these kinds form things with a pure terminal, but
these kinds of options seem to be included with the modern GUI terminal
windows. For example, if you run gnome-terminal, look in your Profile
Preferences Compatibility tab. (Advanced tab in xfce4-terminal,)
In KDE Konsole, in the Profile Input tab, you want to use "Solaris console".
