[Solved] Repeated Character in Vmware remote console

Problem:
When typing via an UMTS connection or bad remote line via remote console, it is even impossible to login since credentials will by cryptically repeated. A single key stroke results in multiple characters printed.

Solution:

  • Power off the virtual machine.
  • Add the following line to the end of the machine’s VMX file. This specifies the value in micro-seconds to delay identical inputs (here 2 seconds).
    keyboard.typematicMinDelay = “2000000”
  • Power on the virtual machine.
