I have a few servers located remotely, on-site (same intra-net, different room).
I have a USB keyboard that I can't live without.
My questions are:
Can I use the USB keyboard?
Can I use Linux as my admin computer?
In other words... does the soft-switch mode work with Linux, and if not, can I switch servers via physical switching.
It looks like according to http://www.raritan.com/support/end-of-life/p2-sc/v126.96.36.199.13/P2-SC-compatibilit-Matrix-188.8.131.52.13.pdf
that I need OS compatible software to run in soft-switch mode. I would am ok with a hardware switching alternative (in case I'm using the wrong term--I am fine with physically pushing a button on the KVM to switch screens).
I'm running Debian as my desktop admin box, if anyone has experience using the soft-switch mode with Debian, I'd appreciate hearing about your experiences.
