Putty vs MC numeric keypad HOW?

Threaded View

I use Putty for 3 years to access my servers, and i was also since
then looking for a solution to get the numeric keypad in MC (midnight
commander) working.

The only thing i DON'T want, is to teach MC to the keypad, because my
linux based terminals will not work properly after that.

Is there any solution, setting Putty or the server side?

Thanks for any help

You haven't stated precisely what your problem is.

On experimenting, I find (with a Debian potato server) that checking
"Disable application keypad mode" in PuTTY (on the Features panel)
allows me to use the keypad in mc in both cursor-keys-etc and numeric
mode, switching with Num Lock. Without this, Num Lock acts as a function
key (causing help to be invoked as if F1 were typed), so only the
cursor-keys mode is accessible. It's possible that this may break other
apps though -- try it and see.
