Automate a client with a script on a server?

    I am trying to control the client computer through the "bt keyboard" that across creates.
    So far I've tried AutoHotKey script like:
    Send {RControl Down}
    Send {LControl Down"
    Sleep 100
    Send {LControl Up}
    Send {RControl Up}
    Send test_test

    Unfortunately, across does not react to the script execution, and input is not switched to the client computer.

    Are there any means to send keystrokes to another computer via across programmatically, i.e. via some scripting app (AutoIt, AutoHotKey) or via some API?

    Hi Placid,

    Thanks for your interest in our Across.

    No. Across doesn't support the feature. I am afraid the feature could impose security issues on Across.

    Across is the thing! It's the only software I've tried that successfully lets me have mirrored keyboard tweaks & remapping scripts on server & client machine. Sending input switch hotkey is I dunno how to implement, guess writing out a separate driver for it. However AHK can move your mouse to the edge, from where you'll need a little gesture to switch. It's super easy on my trackpad. Have a mouse watcher on client machine. Make it activate the topmost window in case mouse has been moved after it staying idle for long or make it activate the window that's right under mouse. Thing is, Across lets AHK differentiate server/client cursor location, it has a weird distinct ahk_class which stays the same on both server and client in case cursor is not on currently script running machine. You might build very useful tools based on that. Lemme know if you need help with that.

    I don't know what AHK does and so can't understand what you are saying.
    Could you please tell me what you want in detail?
    Thanks in advance. :)
