    I have WT1200LE Winterms configured to autologon to a locked down Winterm account. I need to remotely control these and logon as the Admin account. When I am sitting in front of the Winterm, after I do a Shutdown> Logout, the count-down begins from 5 and during that time I press CTRL-BREAK to stop the autologon and enter my Admin credentials. However, I have not yet found a VNC viewer that will allow sending a CTRL-BREAK sequence to the remote Winterm.
    Is there some way of accomplishing this through a VNC session? Some alternate key sequence that may work?

    I am not sure if this will work but if you right click on the VNC window title bar after you start the session a menu will appear then select ctrl down then strike the break key. This is the only way to pass a alt or ctrl key into the VNC session,

    I have just tried this and some permutations of it using different VNC viewers: FreeVNC4, VNCrobot, and UltraVNC. None seem to show any signs of getting through. Which viewer do you use? If I could figure out what the Ascii code for Pause/Break was, then maybe I could construct a custom keysend to go through.

    I have also put in a request to Wyse for this but no response from them yet. Is this a really unusual thing? I’m trying to think of a secure workaround for this in case it just “can’t happen”, but I really think there must be Wyse managers who deal with this.

    Hi Allan,

    It is a bit unusual, I am not sure exactly how you have set up the 1200LE. If you post your wnos.ini file maybe I can come up with a different solution.

    CE uses this kind of login more commonly and with that you can use the esc key.

    As for the viewer I use TightVNC but all of the viewers you mention have the ctrl-down function. I will wait until you post the wnos.ini,

    Cheers,
