I have two puters connected to one screen is their any way I can split the screen so I can run both puters together. Also the mouse & keyboard are also shared.
Regards Alan. :confused:

yes its called a KVM switch (Keyboard Video Mouse) google it to find the deals on it. Dont forget you'll need extra cables also, but they usually will include that, just be sure they do

I`ve allready got the KVM switch & cables, what I am trying to do is run both puters on one monitor with 1 puter on one half of the screen and number 2 puter on the other half. If this is possible???? :confused:

Well, you could use remote desktop sharing, which will allow you to switch between the two PC's at will on the same monitor. I wont do it side by side, but i would have thought this would be a better solution anyway. I think you just click on a tab at the top of your screen to switch between the desktops.

In Help And Support in your Start Menu (XP) type Remote Desktop for help on how to set this up.

Along those lines you could use Remote Assistance. That will have your local PC as your deskotp and a resizable window that is the desk top of your remote PC. Exactly what you want I think. If you have a 100mHz LAN your response will be almost as good as on your local machine.

Damn, why didn't I think of this a year ago. I squint into an old 640x480 on my old machine i use for experimenting with. I could just remote assist it to my main PC..

Thanks for the idea guys. :)

LeeJend,
Remote assistance works on exactly the same principle, except that Remote desktop is for LAN where remote assistance is more of an Internet technology.

Oh, and just FYI it's 100Mbps (Bits per second) as well, not Mhz (Megahertz). ;)

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
