I love Putty , its my go-to ssh client emulator on Windows, recently I got this problem that it would not accept my keyboard’s numeric keypad. I have a pretty cheap remote keyboard, but it works nicely so why is Putty pestering me ?
Turns out Putty has a special Application Keypad mode, in which the keyboard can send special sequences to a server; I just want my numeric part of the keyboard for its numeric capabilities; there is a setting which helps here, and I only discovered this after a few weeks … don’t be like me google the solution;
- right click on the terminal and go to settings
- Terminal -> Features -> Disable application keypad mode
Totally l33t !
