    That won't work with what I'm trying to do. I'm working with a program that needs the tab key pressed to navigate the screen. The arrow keys will not move the cursor and the program doesn't accept mouse input.

    FWIW, I'm using AndroidVNC to remote control my home PC and running a java based terminal emulator to access a main frame type of system.
