Using the MC92N0 with the 5250 keyboard the user has to press the ENT key to connect to a host instead of the FIELD EXIT key as they did for the MC9090 and MC9190



MC92N0 The FIELD EXIT key on the MC92N0 sends a scan code of 001B instead of a 000A (FIELD EXIT) or 000D (Enter) before being connected to a 5250 host.

Root Cause


Wavelink has updated the default scan codes for both the Field Exit and ENT key. The correct scancode that the FIELD EXIT key should send is a 000A but the current scancode being sent is a 001B which cannot be used to connect to a host server. On older devices such as the MC9090 and MC9190 the FIELD EXIT key on the 5250 keyboard would send a 000D before being connected to a host, as well as after, in order to allow the users to press this key instead of the ENT key when prompted to "Press [ENTER] to connect". Once the MC92N0 is connected to a 5250 host then the 5250 keyboard sends the correct scancodes for both the FIELD EXIT and ENT keys.
