I don't remember if there is a command like QEMU to type such keyboard
combination (I have only real NetBSD machines here at home, I will give
a look to this possible option tomorrow at school where we have VMWare

However, don't worry, you'd use wsconscfg(8) to switch between virtual
terminals, it's like the usual Ctrl-Alt-Fx, i.e.:

 # wsconscfg -s 2   # like a Ctrl-Alt-F2
 # wsconscfg -s 5   # like a Ctrl-Alt-F5

HTH and good luck Eric!

Ciao, Leonardo
 NetBSD: No hype and Ctrl-Alt-Fx required. ;-)
