cannot pass alt-b key to ....

 
I get no response when I try to pass alt-b from xshell as a shortcut to remote reboot ...
Is that a setup issue? Thanks.

Open box with list of sessions, select your session > Properties > Terminal > Keyboard > Use Alt as Meta key

no effects. I tried teraterm which works quite ok. it is a telnet service.

it seems to be someting related to send break to term.
How could I make a short-cut for this?
I could see it in the popup menu but I couldn't customize a hotkey like alt-b for it.

Thank you for using Xshell.

We would like to try duplicating the problem. Could you send us the following information?

1. Name and version of the remote host (the one you are trying to reboot)
2. Alt + b is used to send break in some systems. You can send break signal manually by right clicking on the terminal and selecting Send break. Does this fix the problem?

Except for teraterm, other tools doesn't support to pass alt-b either.
To Send break using right pop up menu does fix the problem.

I don't know exactly the what version of telnet service it is. it is probably a version come with embedded linux.

But a keybinding for "send break" should be good enough for me. thanks.
How could I do that?

Send Break item will be added to the Key map dialog box in the menu section. You will be able to assign it to alt-b.

Next release should be available on May 16th.
