Capturing Keyboard Keys

The Anyware Software Client for macOS captures all keys and redirects them to the remote machine with the following exceptions:

  • Anyware Client short cuts appearing under the Connection and View menus.
  • Function Keys (F1 to F12) when in system mode.
  • The Eject and Power keys.

When the PCoIP Sessions starts, and the Anyware Client is the focused foreground application, all keys, apart from from those outlined above, will be redirected to the remote machine.

Key Combinations Access Permissions

You must grant Accessibility permission, so that the Anyware Client can forward keyboard combinations to the remote workstation. This permission is enabled in the Security and Privacy tab on the macOS, as outlined in the screenshot below.

Mapping Function Keys

You can enable Function keys on the PCoIP Software Client for macOS by going to Apple > System Preferences >Keyboard and selecting the function keys you wish to use as standard keys. When the system is configured to not use function keys the client does not get the function key codes from the system when the keys are pressed. In this instance the function keys are usd for other system features such as turning the volume up and down.
