    When connecting from the free Windows client (Windows 7, NoMachine v4.1.29) to a desktop running the free Mac OS server (v4.1.29), the “Windows” key is mapped to the Mac “command” key. It seems to work some of the time, but not consistently, perhaps because at the same time it’s trying to open the start menu on the client machine. Is there any way to map a different key to the command key? I’m hoping to be able to cut, copy, and paste from the keyboard.

    Try enabling the “Grab the keyboard” in the Input settings inside the session (via the Menu, Ctrl-Alt-0)
    When the NoMachine window has the focus, most of the keys are “grabbed” (all the keys/shortcuts that the system allows to grab) and sent to the session instead of the local system.

    Great! That seems to work well.
