VAX, Netterm, and keyboard mapping

VAX, Netterm, and keyboard mapping

VAX, Netterm, and keyboard mapping

I'm not sure if this is the correct forum for posting this question, but I was having trouble finding a forum that seemed to exactly fit my question.

I am connecting to a VAX system through the use of the Netterm terminal emulator, and I am having trouble mapping commands to the Num-Lock key.  I need to map the "^[OP" command to Num-Lock, which will give it the same functionality that F1 has in Netterm by default.  

One problem that I am having is that when I enter a value for the Num-Lock key in Netterm's keyboard mapping, it won't retain it.  If I click another key and then click Num-Lock again, the value that I set Num-Lock to has been erased.  If I play around with the keyboard mapping long enough, I can eventually get the "^[OP" command mapped to Num-Lock, but it still only functions half the time (when Num-Lock is toggled to on.)  However, since Num-Lock still toggles on and off each time I press it, the desired command is only executed every other time I press the key.

Can anyone help me with this?


RE: VAX, Netterm, and keyboard mapping

I apologize for the post, but I found this forum by searching for "VAX" and I didn't notice until after I submitted the post that this is actually a BASIC programming forum.  Still, if anyone could direct me to an appropriate forum for posting this question, I'd appreciate it.  I'm fairly new to Tek-Tips and I couldn't find a forum that seem to fit my question.

Hi Burrito..
