Why doesn't Macro Play back using keyboard?

Last Updated: Mar 12, 2018 01:00PM PDT
Problem: Nothing happens when you playback a recorded macro.

Cause: The default Linux Hot-keys are over riding the Termpro playback macro key sequence of ALT + F5. If you are using a PC PS/2 keyboard, the default is ALT + F5 to activate the PLAY key. If using a 122 keyboard there is no problem with the interverence of Linux keyboard mapping.

Solution: Remap the Play key to a different key then ALT + F5

  • Open Termpro, click FILE/Keyboard Remapping
  • Click on the F3 key to highlight it
  • Scroll down the Function list select Play, then click ALT button, and then the right arrow to assign it to ALT + F3
  • Exit the keyboard remapping screen
  • Press ALT + F3, now will see the "P" in the status bar, press F12, your saved macro will run.

NOTE: remember to enable write protect on the drive after you have finished configuring the device.
  • Logoff User, login as root (default PW = Administrator)
  • System/Preferences/SNMP Agent Manager/Settings/Enable write protect
  • Exit configuration Reboot the device
