X-Server on my PC: X-Manager 1.3.9 (cheap, easy to install, works
target system is a "normal" Win2K Server.
No options for rdesktop, except for the swiss-german keyboard and
It might be different with the real german keyboard layout, but I don't
Have fun and thanks for the good work.

> Hi @ll,
> we're having a strange problem with rdesktop on our PC's.
> We're currently using rdesktop Version 1.1.0 and Hummingbird exceed 8.0 on
> WinXP Professional.
> We can connect to the remote machine (with hopping via a HP-UX server),
> but the keyboardlayout isn't correct. All keys seem to have shifted to the
> next key, e.g. to get an "a" you have to press "s" and to get an "s" you
> have to press "d" (german Layout) and so on.
> We already executed rdesktop with the -k option to make sure the german

> Up to now I couldn't find any resource about such problems, neither on the

> Has anyone a clue?
> THX in advance.
