    Anyone know of a good free solution for this?

    Basically I COULD use a KVM, but I also have two displays. Neither has dual video out. I'd like to be able to user both systems/displays with one mouse/kb, be able to copy/paste between systems.

    Right now I'm using dameware as a workaround, but it's shaky and it's not what I'm looking for.

    I guess, it should be a free "KM" solution. Clipboard is a must, even if just for text.

    Maxivista seems to work well, but not free... :wtc:

    so you have two computers, each with a display that you want to control with a single keyboard and mouse?

    you want synergy: http://synergy2.sf.net

    It works great on Mac and Linux, no clue about Windows though.
