Thanks for the tip!
But why is this, and is it changeable?
Or will it be in a future release of VNC?

VNC does not pass the ctrl and alt keys through to the server PC.

To send ctrl-a, you need to right click anywhere on the window header and
you will see a drop down menu appear.  Click on Ctrl Down, then type the
letter A and then press the ctrl key again.

VNC sends the ctrl and alt by sending a key down, the extra key, and then
the key up.  You can ignore the key up sequence by just pressing the key at
the end.

It is not very easy, but it works.

Am i correct that (some) keystrokes don't work proper in VNC?

for example:
When i press Ctrl-A to: 'select all', nothing happens?!

(right clicking and 'select all' does work though)

why is this?

Also when i sometimes have been remoe controlling a pc i have the feeling
that the remote keyboard somehow 'hangs' or something.
I am running a dos box remotely and when i exit the VNC-session, the local
user has no control over his keyboard, it looks like sometimes the ALT key
hangs, because when pressing ESC, windows comes with its start menu, and the
keystroke(s) for this is 'Ctrl-ESC' !!

thanks
