Getting numbers from Numeric keypad in VIM via putty

You need to configure PuTTY to ignore the application keypad mode. Go to settings, terminal, features and check the checkbox labeled “Disable application keypad mode”. When you hit apply, you’ll be able to type numbers with the keypad in vim if numlock is set. If Num Lock is off, you’ll get cursor movement keys.
