You misunderstood. I was indicating that it worked .. my system credentials have no password, so I simply entered a blank.
I was just drawing a blank as I could not find my password, then remembered that I set it up with NO password, as I hate passwords, especially on a personal system.
Glad NoMachine accepted the -null- password.
More new data to consider: Out of curiosity I tried another remote desktop application. I found that the same problem(s) existed.
That tells me (us?!) that it is not NoMachine causing the issues, it is likely my setup and way I work. Sadly, I’ll probably just have to keep using the terrible little $300 Windows machine for my remote controller, as it seems it’s not possible to use the Mac controlling PC and have my shortcuts and modifier keys work as I want.
Unless there is a way to specifically re-map keys in NoMachine? I see no such utility. Even so, it would not fix the lack of Shift+scroll, since my Shift key is definitely working (as a shift key, not a modifier)
Hi, thanks for responding.
One does not simply disable Sharpkeys, I discovered, but it was easy to save my keys and disable them for the test. And then, sadly, replace them after, as I found no difference in function.
I do not believe Sharpkeys is affecting the Cmd and Shift *and possibly Alt* modifiers.
I did note that my CapsLock key on the Mac functions perfectly well as Delete while connected to the Windows machine.
Also, the Scroll wheel does work (in fact it is Shift+Scroll not working that first clued me into that the modifier keys are not working.)
Thanks again .. your patience is appreciated.
Another few tidbits of info:
Control on the Mac is operating as Control on the PC. Since I go back and forth between these machines, I cannot tolerate having the Ctrl/Cmd key being in different places. I use it constantly (saving, copy/paste/undo).
SHIFT is working. Just not as a modifier for the scroll wheel. I opened a text document using the Mac to open the doc on the PC, and typed. When I push Shift, the letters become capitals. Not sure why it would not work as a modifier for the scroll wheel .. it zooms horizontally in and out in ProTools. Kinda need it!
Hi, thanks! Sorry for the delay .. busy yesterday. Got my auto-connect wish …. the hardest part was finding my password .. there isn’t one!
So that worked great … then I accidentally went into full screen and could not get back to my Mac, or un-full screen .. another interesting challenge for another time. (I force quit to escape that)
