Re: TermTCP for Andriod
I have a Huawei U8800 phone with Android 2.3.
Entering numbers is not possible with Android or Scandinavian keyboards. Everything else, including special characters work OK , just the numbers from the upper row not.
My phone has additionally a special Huawei keyboard and that seems to work with numbers.
In Android phones having problems with TermTcp it is possible to use telnet instead. I am using BlowTorch, which has programmable macro buttons.

PS. Tested also LG P500, Android 2.3, not working with numbers

Greeting all. I will appologize up front for this but. What is the exact name for this app on the android playstore ? I am using a galaxy S4 and have searched, I thought for everything obvious. Such as bpqterm qnd tcpterm etc and cannot locate the app.
Thank you for the help

Keyboards switch to numeric mode and the numbers appear at the upper row of keyboard, but when typing numbers nothing is shown on the input line, so typing is ignored. But all other characters from the numeric mode keyboard can be typed to the input line, just the numbers not.
