    2x PC's via 1x wireless keyboard and mouse.

    I'm using Synergy Enterprises at this mo via a 30 day trial and it works a treat but at $80 a year its expensive.

    Does anyone have an alternative so I can control 2x PC's via one wireless keyboard and mouse but I don't want to use a KVM.

    Login to the first PC and remote desktop onto the other PC.

    Hook up 2 monitors to the graphics card if your main pc has this.

    Found out that Synergy has a free open source version available so dropped the paying version and choose the open source.

    Works a treat
