During a remote login, the device prompts you for a login name and password. You
can display the login name when logged in to the device from a remote console by

Logging in Remotely or Locally
Logging in to a local console is the same as logging in to a remote console except
that you must connect to the device by starting Telnet on your host system. To log
in remotely, begin at step 1. To log in locally, begin at step 3.
To log in from a remote console:
1. Connect to the device by starting Telnet on your host system. Your host system
is the system to which remote terminals are connected.

the Backspace key to delete the last character typed in on the command line.
