Something quite similar, . . . (probably a hassle to switch over) I had a
KVM switch, that permitted two computers to share one keyboard mouse,
monitor, and speakers. DE15, two USB ports and a headphone jack (IOGear
GCS632U?) It apparently watched for a hotkey from the keyboard to

I am looking for a device that sits transparently in an RS-232 serial line and upon
