Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 68285
VNC login doesn't like the numeric keypad
Last modified: 2013-04-30 19:33:11 EDT
Description of Problem:
When entering an IP address as the VNC server name pressing the enter key on the
numeric keypad, vnc doesn't accept the server name.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start VNC client
2. Enter an ip address as the server name (eg 184.108.40.206)
3. hit the enter key on the numeric keypad
System doesn't accept the server name and reprompts you.
Server should ask you to enter the password (if one is set).
Entering the numbers using the numeric keypad then pressing the standard enter
key works ok.
Entering the ip address with the normal number keys and then using the numeric
keypad enter key doesn't work.
Seems to just be the numeric keypad enter key which the system doesn't like.
Keyboard: UK, as default anaconda setup.
This is still present in limbo beta 2: vnc-3.3.3r2-37
This still isn't fix in Red Hat 9 (VNC viewer 3.3.3r2-47).
FYI: US English keyboard.

Red Hat Linux is no longer supported by Red Hat, Inc. If you are still

Some information on which option may be right for you is available at
Red Hat apologizes that these issues have not been resolved yet. We do

I'm going to close this bug because RHL doesn't have support. If the bug is in
