"I attempted to minimize the problem with the use of a 4-port hardware KVM switch. An alternative would have been to use remote control software like PC Anywhere or Dameware. Many of you who work with servers will undoubtedly be familiar with KMV switches. When you have a bank of servers, it is next to impossible to have a monitor for every one of them. Not only would it be expensive, but also the space required for this would be extraordinary. The
KVM allows you to use one terminal, or one Keyboard/Video monitor/Mouse to selectively control many computers."
