Anyone ever successfully use a PS/2 KVM switch on OpenStep Intel? I have several vintage PC's and I want to switch one set of mouse/keyboard.

OpenStep was always a bit picky about registering the mouse and keyboard. So I presume at the very least, I'll need to switch to the OpenStep PC during bootstrap.

I have used several different PS2-only KVMs with success.

USB to PS2 converters can be troublesome, as can some older AT KVMs.

Something to do with losing power to the port, as I recall.

Found a PS2 KVM and it works great. Thanks for the advice.
