Can you have a KVM switch with some PCs having USB Mouse/KB and others having PS2 Mouse/KB? (All have VGA displays). I have 4 pcs, 2 have USB and 2 have PS2 mouse/KBs. I would like to use a USB mouse and keyboard as input.
If needed, here are the OSs:
OS K,M Type
XP Pro PS2
FYI, For testing, I booted the PCs without their K, V or M plugged in and then plugged them in after everything was up. All OSs functioned normally. The PS2 machines, when I plugged in the Mouse/KB the machine did not respond to them until I rebooted. The USB machine worked. (I would have thought if anything it would be the other way around).
Should I buy a USB KVM switch and buy PS2 and USB cables separately, or get PS2 to USB connectors if they exist. Please advise.
