No keyboard input possible for RDP sessions from iOS

Recommended Posts

Running the Domotz app on iOS - both iPhone and iPad

 

When I connect to a RDP client, the connection is made and the remote system's login screen is presented.  However, I do not get a keyboard in iOS to allow me to type anything so I cannot login or interact with the remote system.

 

The touch interface is active as a mouse pointer, but the iOS keyboard does not pop-up.

 

The same remote client works fine when I connect from a desktop using the web browser, so I know the remote RDP is working at least well enough to communicate.

 

Strange side-note:. When I tried this on an iPad Pro using the apple SmartKeyboard, the keyboard was active for input and I was able to type the login information and then use the remote system including typing text in other areas in the remote system.

I believe you have to swipe in from the top left hand corner of the screen. I think it works the same way as if you telnet into something through the app.
