The "KeySend" option is for sending Key presses TO the Client FROM the Server, instigated by key or button press there. You have it the wrong way around.

To send key presses from a client to the Server is a different set of facilities altogether. Please look up the "SendKeyPresses" option and the superior "ButtonKeys", both described in the WideFS technical document. The ButtonKeys option is better as you don't need to ensure focus on the Wideclient window then -- instead of sending the keypresses it sends button numbers which you can then program as you like in FSUIPC's Buttons tab -- for key presses there (which can of course be completely different) or for FS controls.
