how do I send a control-alt-delete from the mac Terminal services client

The mac client is called remote desktop connection.  we are connecting
to a windows 2003 terminal server.

I know fron the windows client you can do control-alt-end, but that
doesn't work on the mac client.

any ideas?

thanx in advnce

Hello Sherpaj,

According to the online help that is downloaded with Remote Desktop
Connection for Macintosh, the key sequence you describe
(control-alt-end) is not listed as one that is "different" between
Windows and Macintosh. (the following URLs assume you have the Remote
Desktop Connection disk image mounted)
which indicates you use the "apple key" in place of Alt. In addition, at
it mentions accessing the Windows Security dialog box (which I assume
you are trying to get at) using one of several key combinations
(control-alt-end, control-alt-del, or control-alt-period; the last two
may be on the number pad or keys above the arrow keys)

Please let me know if these references help. If you are trying to get
at some other capability (other than the dialog I mentioned), please
explain that as well.
