Basically, you can't (yet (I think)). But you can run notepad, type into that,
and then ctrl-c the text and hit the paste button on the dos window - clumsy,
but if your remotely working, and *need* a dos box, it can work.
On a related note, I don't think you can maximise the dos window either -
another pity, because that would minimise the info that has to travel... or
would it? anyone?
oh, and don't forget the CR-LF at the end of the line... :-)
If someone wants to fix the server so you *can* type into dos boxes, that would
make my day :-)

This may be a FAQ, but here goes. When running VNC server on a Win95
machine and starting a DOS box, I can't get any keyboard input to go into
the DOS box. Windows apps seem to work fine. Any ideas?
Also, is there a way to have all keystrokes sent to the server? It would
be nice to send Alt-Tab and Print Screen.
Thanks in advance,
