RDP Client that has send-key functionality
« on: March 16, 2024, 02:53:27 am »
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.

Have you tried pressing [Ctrl]-[Alt]-[End] instead? That's what you do when using an RDP client on another Windows device.

Failing that it looks like there are some patches to get [Ctrl]-[Alt]-[End] working but I wouldn't know how to compile those in I'm afraid:

Sending the Ctrl-Alt-Del combination when pressing Ctrl-Alt-End is implemented in the latest FreeRDP OS/2 port. Please check:

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.

With version 3.4.0 I have normal access to my W10 computer, nothing has changed.

Strange. I have no problems connecting to my servers and workstations.

Try adding the /relax-order-checks switch as this entry in your log suggests:

[17:17:46:873] [88:206d9e00] [ERROR][com.freerdp.core.update] - [check_order_activated]: [0x0a] OpaqueRect - SERVER BUG: The support for this feature was not announced! Use /relax-order-checks to ignore

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.
