Unusual KVM configuration required
Posted on 2013-11-27
Have a client with an unusual configuration that needs KVM hardware.
There are two side by side offices with a manager in each office. There are two workstations located in office A that switches between the two workstations. The second manager in Office B requires access to both the workstations. Both workstations are control PCs that contain SCADA software that control machines in the Sawmill.
They would never both need access to the same machine at the same time but would like to be able to toggle via a single KVM between the 2 workstations from either workstation. When the Office A Manager is on PC1 then the screen,mouse,kb in office B would set to PC2 and visa-versa.
I've thought of just doing it with remote software from one to the other but then the other manager would not have access to the PC not being watched from the office.
