Q: Do Seal Shield keyboards / mice work with “KVM” (Keyboard-Video –Mouse) switches?
A: Yes, Seal Shield keyboards / mice work with USB KVM switches. However, there can be intermittent issues with some PS2 KVM switches. Those issues may be caused by the specific KVM switch or the computer OS because PS2 connections are not “hot swappable”. If you swap out a PS2 keyboard / mouse while the computer is running it won’t recognize it until PC reboots (unlike USB peripherals that are “hot swappable”). Also, if the secondary PC that is using a PS/2 KVM switch goes into “sleep” or “hibernation” mode rebooting might be necessary.
Important: PS/2 KVM switches do not work with Seal Shield keyboards with a built-in touchpad. This is generally the case for all keyboard / mouse mfgs.
