Use one computers keyboard and another's mouse

1 post in this topic

Is there a way to set up two machines so that Machine #1 is serving it's mouse and Machine #2 is serving it's keyboard? Here is why I am asking: I have a PC (Machine #1) with a normal display, keyboard, and mouse arrangement. Then, I have a laptop (Machine #2) that I want to sit directly in front of me; this blocks the keyboard of Machine #1 but leaves me free to use the mouse of Machine #1. So the setup I desire is to be able to use the keyboard from the laptop (Machine #2) and the mouse from the PC (Machine #1). Possible?

I'd like to know as well. Selecting the mouse and keyboard independently would be perfect.

 

Beyond that, another option for having control of more than one set of keyboards and mouse for when I'm moving around a room full of computers, among other situations, would be even better.
