Here are examples of the types of keymappings you can do:

  1. The `Enter` key on the numeric keypad of the PC should perform the function of the `Do` key on the VT220.
  2. The `F2` key on the PC should send <CTRL>X.
  3. The `F7` key on the PC should run the `ELM` command.
  4. The `F9` key on the PC should run send an `escape [ 2 3 ~`.

  2. Drag this to the `Enter` key on the numeric keypad of the `PC keyboard` of the screen.
  3. Release the mouse button.
