Sending Keyboard Commands via RS232

Hello we have an intresting problem where we need to send keyboard commands from one machine to another. I know you can get serial to PS2 convertors (for the case of old serial mice) but is there any way of sending out keyboard commands from a PC com port to another machines PS2 port ( a bit like a serial keyboard if you wish ) but rather than using a hardware keyvoard we want to control it via software

Not sure of what you need. but I would look into PCanywhere or Laplink that can work over a serial port.

Older versions could do this ( you need to check about newer versions )

I hope this helps !
