Hi!

I'm using SuSE 9.2 Pro connecting to an XP Pro machine
to use rconsole to connect to a Novell 4.11/5.1 server.

Rconsole on XP requires the use of the key sequences
Alt-F1 to Alt-F10 but when I use them, they are
executed locally on my SuSE machine.

Is there any way round this so that they are executed
on the XP machine. I've tried to sent them as Special
Characters, but they still get executed on SuSE, and in
the case of Alt-F4, closing the rdesktop window.

Any help would be appreciated.

Cheers,

Al.

    Which version of rdesktop are you using? I think this is a
    Suse and/or window manager problem. Can you try the latest
    rdesktop on some other Linux distribution or with some other
    desktop?
