Konsole, backspace and ^H

I use Konsole on Mandriva 2007.1 (KDE 3.5.7) as my terminal app.

When on the local console or SSH'd into another Linux box, hitting 
the "Backspace" key (UK keyboard), characters get removed as expected (like 
they do in a word-processor).

When I'm SSH'd into certain network devices, I have to hit ^H to achieve the 
same effect - hitting "Backspace" produces no visible effect.

Is there a way to get konsole to send ^H when I hit the backspace key?
