Discussion: CLI discontinued the 122key-B 5250 PS/2 keyboard due to lack of demand, and availability of parts the we used on that model keyboard. The 122key-B used a proprietary 5250 keyboard layout for use with our Termpro terminal emulation software only. CLI currently offers a new 122key PC USB keyboard as a replacement to the 122key-B. The 122key PC USB keyboard uses a "PC" language, and therefore some keys are mapped differently. If you have been used to using the older CLI 122key-B type keyboard, users would need to be re-trained on how to use the new 122key PC USB keyboard.
Solution: Notice the changes, and retrain user to the new layout. Some keys, and functions that have changed on the new 122key-PC-USB are...
- Configure 122keyPC-USB as PC Enhanced keyboard, instead of 122 keyboard. You must do this or else the upper row of Fkeys will not work
- Numpad "/" and "*" are "switched". You could pop off the keycaps, and swap the two keys, or leave in place and re-train the user.
- Rule key. Press ALT + RULE (Page Down) key to active ruler.
- For scrolling Press PAGE UP or PAGE DOWN instead of SHIFT + UP/DOWN arrow.
