Do you have more than one PC or notebook near you - don't like KVMs (too easy to format your own system instead of the test system!) - try Synergy. This lets you access any PC using your main PC's keyboard and mouse. See http://sites.google....torials/synergy for a guide on how to set this up. I find it very useful!

Since years I use KVM, and until now I did not format my system drive by mistake:

But it is a very interesting alternity! :thumbsup:

About one year ago my old KVM died, and it has been a hard work to find and order that ice-aged model in the internet!

Synergy is just KM not KVM - use VNC if you want a virtual KVM (as long as you have an OS running):

  • RealVNC is fully cross-platform, so a desktop running on a Linux machine may be displayed on a Windows PC, on a Solaris machine, or on any number of other architectures. There is a Windows server, allowing you to view the desktop of a remote Windows machine on any of these platforms using exactly the same viewer. RealVNC was founded by members of the AT&T team who originally developed VNC.
  • TightVNC is an enhanced version of VNC. It has added features such as file transfer, performance improvements, and read-only password support. They have just recently included a video drive much like UltraVNC's. TightVNC is still free, cross-platform (Windows Unix and Linux) and compatible with the standard (Real) VNC.
  • UltraVNC is easy to use, fast and free VNC software that has pioneered and perfected features that the other flavors have consistently refused or been very slow to implement for cross platform and minimalist reasons. UltraVNC runs under Windows operating systems (95, 98, Me, NT4, 2000, XP, 2003) Download UltraVNC from Sourceforge's UltraVNC file list

You misunderstood me.

My post is related to your

don't like KVMs (too easy to format your own system instead of the test system!)

But now I'm confused.

What's (in this scenario) the difference between KVM-VNC and KM?
