Using Jump Desktop 4.0.5 on my iPad 2 (iOS 5.0.1) I am encountering an odd issue with the keyboard when connecting to a VNC session hosted by VMWare Workstation 8. I am able to connect to the session just fine but when I use the keyboard to type an "@" it shows up as "2". To get the "@" character (and any other shifted character) I must use the soft-shift key above the virtual keyboard and press "2". I am also forced to use the soft-shift key for caps since the normal ipad shift key doesn't appear to do anything. This problem also occurs when using a bluetooth keyboard.
I'm convinced this is an issue with the communication between jump desktop and VMWare's VNC server implementation since I am able to use jump desktop just fine when connecting to my mac via VNC and I'm able to connect to VMWare's VNC server without issue from my mac's Screen Sharing application. Have I missed some basic configuration option to get VMWare's VNC Server properly working with Jump Desktop?
