Get the display output of another computer on the laptop

Get the display output of another computer on the laptop

I have Dell Server that has DB15 port as well as couple of USB ports
I would like to plug my laptop to it so that I can see the display of the Dell server on my laptop screen.

I wonder how I can achieve that?

Thank you

I do not know how you can do it (I don't think you can at all, but I would like to learn as well), but maybe instead you can RDP into your server on your laptop?

I see. Does it have Idrac? If yes, this would be your way in to see Bios and bootstrap.

Depending on your Dell server you may have DRAC or IDRAC available  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dell_DRAC  This is a network interface.

As a hardware solution you could use a VGA capture card.  For the laptop that's going to mean VGA to USB which is expensive - the components will probably cost you half the price of a new laptop.  I'd suggest you use a low-tech solution.  get a digital camera or even a phone camera and record the screen on the server, then transfer the file to your laptop and take screenshots.  Not as high quality as using direct capture hardware but will save you hundreds of $$'s

It sounds like you're describing a KVM console over IP.  Get something like a Lantronix Spider and you can basically view the remote console over a network IP address.  These are great for small business systems.
