Networking / Re: RDP Client that has send-key functionality

That fixed it.  Thanks very much.

I checked the logs and there seemed to be a few errors in it and was not sure which one could be the issue and I did read the readme os2 and I see the protocol section and what options are there.  I also see that the objects created have check boxes for those and the ones that I had working had that checked and others did not.  They all worked before so something may have toggled that on some objects or the properties maybe got lost.

I set that property on the template.

I appreciate your suggestion on this and the app too.

I installed version 3.4.0 and with this version I can no longer connect to Windows or ArcaOS VM but I can connect to Ubuntu Linix on my Raspberry PI.

I have attached the connection logs for the windows 10 VirtualBox.

I guess I forgot about that.  Wordpress doesn't have a way to host files directly so I put them on a google drive and shared it from the page.  There is a VirtualBox blank template OVA for ArcaOS 5.x.  This template should work for most any OS2 version from Warp 3 up to ArcaOS 5.1.

the Template appliance has some info in the VM description on adjusting some settings for each host machine.

I know that when I first installed many operating systems using VirtualBox Networking was a problem and it seemed that switching from NAT to bridged fixed some of those.

Time permitting I can add some other appliances for abandoned software.  There are archives around that have the installs for many operating systems.

The link to the OVA template with good settings is on the page after the screen shot of the VM settings.

I have a site called OS Collector at  where I have shared virtualbox settings for many of my Virtualbox VMs.

Each OS has a screen shot of the Virtualbox settings.  In most cases things are pretty straight forward but I have some interesting OS installs including OS/2 V1 up to ArcaOS 5.1, Mac Rhapsody, Unixware, DesqviewX and more.

Some of these do not work on any network since there is no driver but there was a time when we had no network  :o

It also has some tips to get some of things to work in VrtualBox.


Networking / RDP Client that has send-key functionality

FreeRDP works great but if I try to RDP to a legacy Windows NT OS there is no way to send "Alt+Ctrl+Del" key sequence to initiate a login using FreeRDP.

I have not found any native OS/2 client that has that feature.

What I do now is use FreeRDP to my Raspberry PI running Ubuntu and use Remmina to remote desktop to Windows NT type OS since it does have send-key.

The Arca Mapper reinstall with Yum worked.  Thank your for that.

I was able to dig a little deeper into connection to Linux machines on my home network.  Using the Fresh install with the complete new Arca Mapper I was able now to connect to a Windows 10 machine when checking Encryption and Linux by unchecking encryption and checking NTLM1.  Sometimes it appears that the refresh doesn't refresh the Arca Mapper browser maybe because of how the last authentication was done.

At the time of 5.1.0 release, the mapper has NTLM and Kerberos (for limitations see paragraph 5.2.3 of

It is an improvement from earlier versions and I expect that future releases of 5.1.x will include improvements.

Besides the original findings, I also found that for some reason Firefox. Seamonkey and Thunderbird all get the same error: "Couldn't load xul.dll.  OS/2 error 2 faulty module LIBVPX6."  As I said earlier though I have not found any issues with any other OS2 or WinOS2 program so far.

I made a copy of my VirtualBox ArcaOS 5.0.7 in order to upgrade it to 5.1.0 to see how well that worked. When I checked the results of the upgrade it looked pretty good. 

I did notice something odd though with the upgrade which was that the new ArcaMapper only had a logon icon while the fresh install had 8 items.  The upgrade also was missing the exe files for those 8 icons.  The Fresh install was complete and the new ArcaMapper was able to connect to a Windows 10 computer on my network but I have not yet been able to connect to Linux. I will have to do some more reading on this but first glance it appears it only works on modern Windows peers.  Maybe it also works on networks with domain controllers but I need to research this some more.

Also missing from the upgrade was the Arca Package manager.

The upgrade left all my installed programs (OS/2 and WinOS2) working fine and that is a time saver for sure.

With new releases there are bound to be issues likely fixed in 5.1.1 :)

Setup & Installation / Re: ArcaOS 5.0.x OVA for VirtualBox

I think the guest OVA archive that is imported would be initially set with the settings for network and sound card from the host that created the OVA.  You should be able to change the setting on the new host to match.  This is what I saw when I created an OVA from a Windows machine and imported it to a Mac.  The VM did boot up after I changed the configuration settings for network and sound card.
