Brian Dagan - Love it... Always gotta one up me :) Great adaptation.
I've used AutoHotkey for a while for a number of different things, but never thought to use it for this until this thread :)
UGH, okay, so, I'm noticing a problem. If KRC is the foreground window, the Ctrl-Shift-V hotkey is overridden (as in KRC sends those keystrokes to the machine, Autohotkey doesn't intercept them). Probably should've tested for this... d'oh! Can anyone weigh in to see if this is different for the function keys (e.g. F3) or using the one in the Automation Exchange?
Brian Dagan - I can say with certainty that F3 *does* work with it as that's what I used in my simple example. I ened up changing that to Shift-F3 before I rolled this out to my techs because F3 is used for search in a lot of windows programs and I didn't want that overridden.
It also works in RDP windows *as long as the RDP window is not full screen*
Yup, confirmed that F3 works... I'll keep playing around with it. I'm either thinking of checking for Ctrl-V-V in quick succession or for Ctrl-V to be held down just so people don't complain too much (myself included--this Microsoft ergonomic keyboard has a function key that's the size of a Tic-Tac)
OK then, this is a nice touch on the forum, thanks everyone for helping! This should be enough for anyone to accomplish the copy-past on RDP and KRC of passwords.
Just to make you smile, if you read this post and saw only 10 lines are used in our AutoIT tool, you can understand my shame that a manager actually asked me to suggest a price for handing over the code of.... (drumroll).... 1,000 euros.
Proof positive that there is definitely a lot of creative, and helpful people here on the forum, and when we all get together to try and solve a problem, it *can* be done :)
Inspired by the F3 tool made by Aspect ICT we have taken this on a stage and wanted to see if anyone wants to be involved in what I think could be a very useful product.
We have completed the following and are testing internally but wanted some feedback from the community to see if this could be a product.
Password Secure Lookup Tool (PSL Tool)
We wrote this tool while waiting on Kaseya completing their full integration with the password vaults and Kaseya remote control which I understand will be done via AAOD but not sure when it will be ready.
This helps us with some efficiency's and lets us confirm with customers that our techs don't know the passwords for long as they are reset at the end of each day or whatever schedule we want.
So I suppose I want to task if anyone wants to BETA test it with us with no obligations or commitments on both party's at this stage. Obviously you need to use the password server function of AuthAnvil and have a common admin account across all your customers but we have scripts to assist with that if you don't.
If your interested please email me - firstname.lastname@example.org and we can discuss it further.
Some screenshots below if it helps - not sure board will show them properly
Hey NIKNAKS456 - as Aspect ICT employee it's nice to see this post: kudos to you! I like the way you describe what you want to do.
I think it's a step forward, but want to run this by our Security Officer, who might not be as happy to see this. Since we gained the ISO 27001 security membership any step to make life easier for our techs, has to be balanced by looking at the security side. He's away for a few days, but I'll get back to this discussion asap.
Does anybody have a paste solution that works with other keyboard languages than En-US? The problem being that if a password has for example Å,Ö,Ä characters and the keyboard language of the remote host is english then the pasted text "translates" those chars based on the keyboard language, ie. Ö = ;
sorry neuvoja, cant help on the other languages but we have updated the tool to allow for multiple passwords to be recalled from the task bar icon.
Resurect an old thread to ask a new question... Did anyone ever come up with a hotkey sequence for this type of app that the KLC remote control doesn't override... I'm still using my standard Shift-F3 and it works great for the standard KRC and RDP, but fails miserably with the KLC remote control
Duplicate post ignore this one
Ok, to answer my own question, I did quite a bit of testing today and found that a key sequence that works for me at least and doesn't conflict with any other process that I run is F9.
... Though I also found that using the "new" remote control ala live connect, there is some weird thing where it's like the caps lock is stuck on when it pastes, though "normal" typing works just fine :(
