So I am setting up a remote KVM extender over Cat5. The extender works fine, but I need the hotkeys for the KVM switch to function. However, the KVM extender cable has a single USB connector, while the KVM switch has a USB port for both keyboard and mouse. Currently, the mouse functions, but the keyboard hotkeys don't allow switching between devices.
- KVM has 2xUSB (Keyboard/Mouse)
- KVM Extender has 1xUSB (both)
- Likewise, keyboard data is not routed to remote machine (so user can't switch between local machines)
Is there a solution here? Do I need to hook up a hub and run male to male to the KVM?
Heres the products I'm using:
Thanks in advance for the overflow of expert advice I am sure to receive =)
