I'm connecting using CoRD to a remote Linux system running xrdp. On that Linux system, I'm running VirtualBox. To escape from Virtualbox, I need to hit a "right control" key. Trouble is... I don't know how.

Anyone have experience with this kind of arrangement? Suggestions?

how is this Apple related? – Max Ried Aug 5 '12 at 17:56
CoRD is a MacOS Application. Microsoft Terminal Services Client on Windows sends the ctrl without a problem. – mgjk Aug 5 '12 at 19:22

I was able to reprogram the VirtualBox Host Key. It seems to think my right-command key is a left alt, but the end result is the same, it works now. Virutalbox Host Key
