Disabling keyboard and flushing buffer

 Disabling keyboard and flushing buffer

I am busy with a project to control a machine remotely via IPX. I need
code to disable the keyboard when a hot-key is pressed on the remote
system.  I know bit 2 of port $21 must be XOR'd, but the problem comes
when something is typed on the machine being controlled. When I
re-enable the keyboard, these keypressed are then pushed back into the
keyboard buffer. I tried clearing the buffer, but some keypresses still
remain somewhere in memory. These keypresses don't appear to go through
the buffer, because after a test program using this disabling system
quits, the keys are piped directly into the source on the screen.

Could someone please tell me what I am doing wrong, and where these
keypresses are stored (not $40:$1E)
