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):

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start VNC client
2. Enter an ip address as the server name (eg
3. hit the enter key on the numeric keypad

Actual Results:
System doesn't accept the server name and reprompts you.

Expected Results:
Server should ask you to enter the password (if one is set).

Additional Information:
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 still isn't fix in Red Hat 9 (VNC viewer 3.3.3r2-47).

Red Hat Linux is no longer supported by Red Hat, Inc. If you are still
running Red Hat Linux, you are strongly advised to upgrade to a
current Fedora Core release or Red Hat Enterprise Linux or comparable.
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
want to make sure that no important bugs slip through the cracks.
Please check if this issue is still present in a current Fedora Core
release. If so, please change the product and version to match, and
check the box indicating that the requested information has been
provided. Note that any bug still open against Red Hat Linux on will be
closed as 'CANTFIX' on September 30, 2006. Thanks again for your help.

I'm going to close this bug because RHL doesn't have support. If the bug is in
latest vnc release, I'm ready to reopen this bug
