  RedGBarnPC 19:51 13 Dec 05

migyt sound strange but I want to have 2 different PC's connected to 1 monitor and just flick from 1 to the other when needed

Is this possible?

Yes easy peasy just get yourself a KVM switch,PS2 style then you can connect 2 pc's using 1 monitor and 1 keyboard and 1 mouse (I do it all the time) I got my switch new from e-bay around £16...
Hope this helps...

Not really strange!

I got the following one after some problems with a belkin: D-Link DKVM-2K Port KVM Network Switches: Electronics & Photo

Lower end of the market but works great for me!

  pauldonovan 09:14 14 Dec 05 some kind of remote desktop e.g. VNC. There was another thread on this a while ago. VNC is software that lets you control the other PC from your PC if they are networked (I'm assuming they are).

OK we took the time to answer your question perhaps you could do the same to acknowledge them!!!!!!!

Don't worry about it. Some people come in, get an answer and never come back.
