I have a client (win xp) connected to a terminal server, when i scan barcodes local, everything goes right, but when i do that on terminal, i'll get the barcode, but in 8 of 10 cases, some numbers are converted into symbols,
as example: 2 > @ or 8 > ! (this is on a french belgian keyboard)
I allready did a lot of things like keystroke delays and so on,

Depending on what application your client will use, you will need to configure the scanner in which ever way suits your customer.
If you use a telnet client kind like wavelink, you can configure it from there. If you planning on using some other application that has not scaner api's, you will need to use datawedge which is available as a free download from symbol support.
The DCP is normally available free of charge, however motorola has changed the downloads policy for dcp and depending on the version, you may need to provide them with information of the terminal and request the download.
Make sure that the ESS ID and security features match the ones on the AP.
Also, from the MC9090, you will need to click on the radio icon, select options and in the top drop down menu, choose regulatory. select the country where you are and uncheck the box named enable 802.11d.
This should have the terminal connected on to the network.
Did you read the installation and configuration manuals? I download them from this website: http://tinyurl.com/359pwh
Your scanner might note be configured correctly.
here are the guides I downloaded: http://tinyurl.com/2sakgf
And the MFG website where you can download the material: http://www.metrologic.com/corporate/products/pos/ms9520/
The scanner and host system must use the same communication protocol. I have a feeling the scanner is not configured correctly. The USB and serial connectors are 2 different types of configuration, but there are more.
You can also download the drivers and POS software from there website.
You could use a ps2 splitter cable to connect both the barcode scanner and the keyboard to the pc.
You would also have to use the correct scanner codes to ensure that the scanner is configured properly.
Alternatively, you could try connecting the scanner with only the ps2 to usb and miss out the extension cable to determine if that is the problem.
If the scanner is a ps2 wedge scanner, it will need reprogrammed with the correct scanner codes for usb.
