Remote computer keyboard is locked

Hi experts,
I am logging into a remote computer via a secure gateway to my work. The remote computer will not accept any keyboard input from my home laptop. I was thinking I would use a dos command shutdown -t 0 -r -f which I was able to paste into the remote desktop cmd window but I cannot figure out how to mimic the pressing ofthe enter key to activate the reboot.

In short I need to get my remote computer to start recognizing my home laptop keyboard -- obviously it accepts all mouse stuff fine.

Thanks.

Clever idea. Just type your command in a notepad and hit enter at the end of the line, then select everything, including the single space of the second line and copy it. Then paste it and voila! Enter will be included in the paste command.

Already closed but you could try the onscreen keyboard as well, it's under Accessoiries, Ease of Access
