RDESKTOP command help


I am using rdesktop to access my win2k terminal server. I have 2 problems. I have it set to run in full screen mode, but I cant figure how to toggle it down to a window like you can with clrl+alt+break on a windows client so that I can work on my linux desktop without closing out the rdesktop session. Also, I cant get the number pad on my keyboard to work. The numbers across the top work but just not the numpad. Anybody using this program know how to fix this? I cant seem to find any real documentation on it.

If you are using the patched version of 1.0.0 (1.0.0pl19.7.2) you can press CTRL-ALT-ESC to exit Full Screen mode. Check the Rdesktop mailing list archive at rdesktop.org for more info.

I am using 1.1.0, have only been using it a few days so I believe it to be pretty current. I have tried ctl-alt-break/pause and or esc, neither seem to do anything. Is there a keyboard shortcut that will toggle me to another desktop workspace with rdesktop running in full screen mode?

I figured out the number problem though. Seems as though it detects it backward when it opens. eg, if you run rdesktop with the numlock on, you can turn the num lock off and it works, so I just kick the num lock off before opening rdesktop and then kick it back on and all is well.

also, if your screen is consumed by rdesktop, you can probably do a ctrl-alt-F2 and login, then do a "startx -- :1" to start another x session if you want.
