  • Sending Alt Command in TS

    I have searched for this answer to no avail. Is it possible to send the alt command in a terminal session? I have a special app on my terminal server that uses an extended ascii character in the password. Does anyone have any ideas?

    Hi,

    I guess that you may need to write a custom TS Client software or
    use one of the open source and edit it.
    Please review Microsoft SDK for further assistant.

      I was looking at something similar just today as I wanted to send a Ctrl-Alt-Del. Here's what I found:

      http://www.sessioncomputing.com/keyboard.htm

      In particular:

      Terminal Server / Remote Desktop Client Shortcut Keys:

      Key combination Function Similar local keys
      CTRL+ALT+END Opens the Windows Security dialog box CTRL+ALT+DELETE
      CTRL+ALT+BREAK Toggles the Terminal Services client display from window to full screen NONE
      ALT+INSERT Cycles through running programs on the remote computer ALT+TAB
      ALT+HOME Displays the remote computer's Start menu
      ALT+DELETE Displays the remote window's Control menu ALT+SPACE BAR
      CTRL+ALT+NUMBER PAD MINUS Places an image of active window onto the TS clipboard ALT+PRINT SCREEN
      CTRL+ALT+NUMBER PAD PLUS Places an image of the entire Terminal Services client on the Terminal Services clipboard PRINT SCREEN

      Maybe this will help. I was able to do an Alt-Fn-65 on my laptop (Fn gives me the numeric keypad) and I got an 'A' both in a local Notepad and a Remote Desktop Notepad.

      What exactly is your extended ASCII character?
      Cheers,

      Rick

        Thanks for the suggestion, but I had already scoured the command list for an alt key solution.

        Specifically I need to send the pi character.

          So you are trying to enter an Alt + 227 on the numeric keypad?

          That works fine for me in notepad both on my PC and tunneled in to a server via Remote Desktop.

          I see π in both instances.
