Question about Addlogix (MD4-103) Networking Switch
Hello My question: I have two old macs and I would like to use my adb keyboard for both computers. I thought to buy an adb adapter (female/female), connect the keyboard (male) to one extreme, connect the switch cable to the other extreme and connect two adb cables (port A, port C) to the switch, one for each computer. Is this OK or are there some electrical considerations that I sould be aware of? I really appreciate your help, TIA, R
Yes and no. The good thing is this will work the bad thing is the possible droping of the driver connection which rarely happens, but it is a possibility. Also if the cables use mechanical switching there are galvanic issues that may occur (and opto-isolated switch is better). However this will work. This the basic functionality of the KVM switch.
