Keyboard Commands

Many functions, such as scrollback navigation, find, etc. can be accessed directly via keyboard shortcuts.  This article describes the varios keys and key combinations that are accessible from AbsoluteTelnet.

Cursor Keys Without keyboard modifiers, the cursor keys send the appropriate escape sequences as defined by the current emulation. With the Ctrl key held, the cursor keys perform the following actions:

Function Keys

For the VT100 emulation, the first four function keys send the standard vt100 function key escape sequences.

Break Key

To send a BREAK in a telnet or serial connection, press the Ctrl-Break key combination. In a telnet session, this will send the telnet BREAK command. For serial connections, this will send a one second serial BREAK signal on the currently open serial port.

Copy/Paste Keys Because the host may count on being able to receive Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V as keypresses, AbsoluteTelnet uses Ctrl-Ins as Copy and Shift-Ins as Paste.
