View Full Version : KVM Switch / old computer use question

07-25-2005, 02:10 AM
I currently have a dual graphics card, which I use to 8 table.

I have an old computer which I want to make use of via KVM switch. My plan is to rip all my mp3s to disk on another computer. Does KVM allow networking & will the KVM switch allow me to use both monitors or just one?

Specifally, if I am using port 2 to rip my mp3s, and will I have use of 2 monitors or simply one?


I'm sure this isn't very comprehensible, so just ask for clarification.

basically, one monitor will be the main monitor that is switched between the 2 computers, and 1 monitor will be the secondary that can only be used on the computer with the dual outputs. the primary output will go to the KVM, then to the monitor, the secondary will go to the second monitor.

No networking takes place in the KVM, you'll need a seperate router (or crossover cable) for this.
