Putty Numpad doesn't work

Just learned a new trick for putty. Sometimes you press numpad numbers and the program (via ssh) processes these as special characters. If you press Ctrl+Numlock you can manually force putty to use the numpad = numbers.
Ctrl+NumLock = Working Numpad

Wow, this has been bugging me for quite some time in putty - very frustrating! Thanks for the tip, now I can work properly again!

By chance I found a nicer alternative.

1. Pop up your Putty and go to Terminal > Keyboard. Set it to "linux".

2. To make the setting stick around, go to Session > default settings and click Save.

PS: You might want to repeat this for connections you already had. New ones will use your altered default settings.
