Synchronization of the local and remote mouse pointers is accomplished either automatically or manually.

Automatic Mouse Synchronization
Automatic Mouse Sync provides automatic locked-in syncing of the remote and local mouse pointers, eliminating the need to constantly resync the two movements. The icon on the Control Panel indicates the synchronization mode status:The “A” on this icon indicates Automatic Mouse Sync is available and enabled. This is the default setting when Mouse Sync is available.The “M” on this icon indicates Automatic Mouse Sync is available but not enabled. When Automatic Mouse Sync is available, clicking the icon toggles its status between enabled and disabled. If you choose to disable Automatic Mouse Sync mode, you must use the manual synching procedures described in the following Manual Mouse Synchronization section.

Control Panel

Manual Mouse Synchronization
If the local mouse pointer goes out of sync with the remote system’s mouse pointer, there are a number of methods to bring them back into sync. Before trying any mouse synchronization procedures, go to your Mouse Properties Settings and set them according to the following instructions. The Mouse Properties Settings should be set on the computer attached to the B032-VU1, not the computer you are using to access it. Note: For the local and remote mice to synchronize, you must use the generic mouse driver supplied with the MS operating system. If you have a third party driver installed, such as one supplied by the mouse manufacturer, you must remove it.
Windows XP and later:

  1. Open the Mouse Properties dialog box.
  2. Click the Pointer Options tab.
  3. Set the mouse speed to the middle position (6 units in from the left).
  4. Disable Enhance Pointer Precision. If you are having syncing problems after adjusting the mouse properties, try the following methods to help synchronize the local and remote mouse pointers.
    Note: Mouse synchronization may require several seconds to take effect. Wait 15 to 30 seconds to ensure the mouse has had enough time to sync.

Control Panel Settings
Click the Control Panel Settings icon to open a menu sathat includes some of the same functions as the control panel (e.g. Video Sync and Zoom),  as well as additional settings and functions for controlling remote sessions and maintenance of the unit. All functions and settings in this menu are described in this section.

Macros
The Macro icon opens up a screen that provides access to two tabs: Hotkeys and User Macros. Each function is described in the following sections.

 Hotkeys
Various actions related to manipulating the remote server can be accomplished via keyboard hotkey commands. The Hotkeys tab lets you configure which hotkeys perform which actions. Hotkeys that invoke an action are shown to the right of its name. Click the checkbox to the left of an action’s name to enable or disable its hotkey.

To change the hotkey for an action:

  1. Highlight the desired hotkey and click the Set Hotkey button.
  2. Press the combination of Function keys (one at a time) you want to use for the action. The Function key names appear in the Edit Hotkey field as you press them.
    Note: You can use the same function keys for more than one action as long as the key sequence is not the same. To cancel setting a hotkey value, click Cancel. To clear an action’s Hotkeys field, click Clear.
  3. When you have finished keying in your sequence, click Save.To reset all hotkeys to their default values, click Reset.

An explanation of the Hotkey actions is in the table below:

Action Description
Exit Remote Location Breaks the connection to the remote session and returns you to local client computer operation. This is equivalent to clicking the Exit icon on the Control Panel. Default keys: F2, F3, F4.
Adjust Video Brings up the Video Settings dialog box. This is equivalent to clicking the Video Settings icon in the Control Panel Settings menu. Default keys: F5, F6, F7.
Toggle Video Capture Toggles the Video Capture feature to start and stop recording a video of the remote display. Default keys: F10, F9, F8.
Toggle Control Panel Toggles the Control Panel off and on. Default keys: F3, F4, F5.
Adjust Mouse Synchronizes local and remote mouse movements. Default keys: F8, F7, F6.
Video Auto-Sync Performs a Video auto-sync operation. It is equivalent to clicking the Video Sync icon on the Control Panel. Default keys: F6, F7, F8.
Show/Hide Local Cursor Toggles off and on. Hides local cursor, locks mouse pointer and keyboard use within the Windows Client AP window and hides the control panel. This is equivalent to selecting the Single pointer type from the Mouse Pointer icon on the Control Panel Settings menu. Default keys: F4, F5.
Substitute Ctrl Key If your local client computer captures Ctrl key combinations (preventing them from being sent to the remote server), you can implement their effects on the remote server by specifying a function key to substitute for the Ctrl key. For example, if you substitute the F11 key, pressing [F11] + [5] would appear to the remote server as [Ctrl] + [5]. Default key: F11.
Substitute Alt Key Although all other keyboard input is captured and sent to the unit, [Alt] + [Tab] and [Ctrl] + [Alt] + [Del] work on your local client computer. To implement their effects on the remote server, another key may be substituted for the Alt key. For example, if you substitute the F12 key, you would use [F12] + [Tab] and [Ctrl] + [F12] + [Del]. Default key: F12.

User Macros


User Macros are created to perform specific actions on the remote server. User Macros are stored on the Local Client computer. There is no limit to the number of macros, the size of the macro names, or makeup of the hotkey combinations that invoke them.
To create a macro:
  1. Select User Macros, then click Add.
  2. In the dialog box that comes up, enter a name for the macro:
  3. Click Set Macro and then the red Record icon.
  4. Press the keys for the macro.

When recording Macro key commands:

Upon finishing your Macro recording, the Macros screen reappears with the new Macro and its Macro key commands displayed. If you want to change any of the keystrokes for a macro, select the macro from the list and click Set Macro. This brings up a dialog box allowing you to change the content of your keystrokes, change their order, etc.

Select a macro and click Set Hotkey to assign a hotkey to execute the macro. 7. The complete Macro list can be imported/exported using the icons on the top panel.After creating your macros, you can run them in two ways:

  1. Use their hotkey command (if one was assigned).
  2. Open the Macros screen, select a Macro and click the Play icon. Click on the arrow next to the Play icon and you will be given two choices:

Search
The Search icon in the top right of the Macros screen lets you filter the list of macros that appear in the large lower panel for you to play or edit.  Click the drop-down menu to choose whether you want to search by name or key, enter a string for the search, then click the Search icon. All instances that match your search string appear in the upper panel.

Video Settings
Clicking the Video Settings icon on the Control Panel Settings menu brings up the Video Settings dialog box. The options in the dialog box allow you to adjust the Screen Position, slide bar settings (Performance, Video Quality, Detect Tolerance) and Refresh settings, as shown below:

Option Description
Manual Manually adjust the horizontal and vertical position of the remote server window by clicking the arrow buttons.
Auto-Sync Click the Auto-Sync button to have the vertical and horizontal offset values of the remote screen automatically detected and synchronized with the local screen.

Notes:

•      If the local and remote mouse pointers are out of sync, performing this function will bring them back into sync in most cases.

•      This function works best with a bright screen.

•      If you are not satisfied with the results, use the four arrow buttons to position the remote display manually.

Performance The unit will use the value selected here to automatically adjust the Video Quality settings to allow for the desired level of keyboard and mouse performance. A larger value will reduce the Video Quality to improve remote operation responsiveness.
Video Quality Drag the slider bar to adjust the overall Video Quality. A larger value will improve video quality, but will result in a larger amount of data being transmitted. This can affect remote operation responsiveness.
Enable Refresh The unit can redraw the screen every 1 to 99 seconds, eliminating unwanted artifacts from the screen. Select the Enable Refresh checkbox and enter a number from 1 to 99. The unit will redraw the screen at the interval you specify. This feature is disabled by default.

Notes:

•      The unit starts counting the time interval when mouse movement stops.

•      Enabling this feature increases the volume of video data transmitted. The lower the number specified, the more often the     video data is transmitted. Setting the value too low may adversely affect overall operating responsiveness.

Detect Tolerance This setting relates to video quality. It governs detecting or ignoring pixel changes. A high setting can result in a lower quality display due to less data transfer. A lower setting will result in better video quality. Setting the threshold too low may allow too much data to be transferred, negatively impacting performance.

Zoom
The Zoom icon controls the zoom factor for the remote console window:

Setting Description
25% Sizes and displays the remote view window at 25%.
50% Sizes and displays the remote view window at 50%.
75% Sizes and displays the remote view window at 75%.
100% Sizes and displays the remote view window at 100%.
1:1 Sizes and displays the remote view window at 100%. The difference between this setting and the 100% setting is that when the remote view window is resized, its contents don’t resize—they remain at the size they were. To see objects outside of the viewing area, move the mouse to the window edge and the screen will scroll.
Full Screen Sizes and displays the remote console window at full screen. To exit, click Full Screen a second time.

Virtual Media
The Virtual Media feature found on the Control Panel Settings menu allows a drive, ISO file, folder, removable disk or smart card reader on a user’s system to appear and act as if it were installed on the remote server.

Mounting Virtual Media
To mount a virtual media device:

  1. Click the Virtual Media icon to bring up the Virtual Media Control dialog box:
  2. Click the plus icon and then select the media source. Depending on your selection, additional dialog boxes appear to let you select the desired Drive, ISO File, Folder or Removable Disk.
  3. If your device only supports full speed USB, click the Disable High Speed USB Operation Mode checkbox.
  4. To add additional media sources, repeat steps 2 and 3. You can select as many sources as you want, but you can only mount up to three at a time. The top three in the list are automatically selected when you click the Mount icon you want to move, then click the arrow icons to move it up or down the list.
  5. “Read” refers to the redirected device being able to send data to the remote server. “Write” refers to the redirected device being able to have data from the remote server written to it. For the redirected device to be writable, as well as readable, click the Enable Write checkbox:
  6. To remove an entry from the list, select it and click the trash can icon
  7. After you have made your media source selections, click the Mount icon. The dialog box closes, and the virtual media device(s) you have selected are redirected to the remote server, showing up as drives, files, folders, etc. on the remote server’s file system.
  8. Once mounted, you can treat the virtual media as though it really existed on the remote server (e.g. drag and drop files to/from it, open files on the remote server for editing and save them to the redirected media, etc.). Files you save to the redirected media will actually be saved on your local client computer’s storage. Files you drag from the redirected media will actually come from your local client computer’s storage.
  9. To end the redirection, bring up the Control Panel and click on the Virtual Media icon. All mounted devices are automatically unmounted.

On-Screen Keyboard
The B032-VU1 supports an on-screen keyboard, available in multiple languages, with all the standard keys for each supported language. Click this icon to open the on-screen keyboard:

One of the advantages of the on-screen keyboard is that if the keyboard languages of the remote and local systems aren’t the same, you don’t have to change the settings for either system. Just bring up the on-screen keyboard, select the language and start typing.
Note: You must use your mouse to click on the keys of the on-screen keyboard. You cannot use your actual keyboard.

Changing Languages
To change languages, click the down arrow next to the currently selected language in the top-right corner of the keyboard, and select the desired language.
