how to create virtual terminals

Hello All!

I want to know how to create virtual terminals in aix. As in Linux, simply by using Ctl-Alt-F1-F6 keys, i can switch to any of the 6 corresponding virtual terminals. But i dont know how to do that in AIX. Also if I access an AIX server through remote desktop, will the method to create virtual terminals change? If so, what it will be? I have CDE as the environment.

Thanks and regards,
