Keyboard shortcuts

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
