How to use: Run the server on the computer with the keyboard being used and set up the keyboard hotkeys. There are sample file(s) above for some programs you can use. Note: You have to rename the sample file to NetworkSendKeys.ini to use it.

Configuration File Format: The configuration file is named NetworkSendKeys.ini and is an INI file.
It has three sections:
Main – WinTitle and WinText. These values match the Window to send keys to. See AutoIt3 documentation for more.
ProgramSendKeys – This section maps program functions to the keys to send. Like Menu = {PGUP} to make the Menu command send the key page up.
Hotkeys – This section maps hot keys to program functions. Like {NUMPAD5} = Menu to make Numberpad key 0 press the defined menu key.

For more on the key format see the [ AutoIt3 Send Documentation].
Note: There are some keys that can’t be set as hotkeys, see the [ AutoIt3 SetHotKey Documentation].
