The Input Director can help those users who walk through the house from one room to another to use different computers. This program allows you to control multiple PCs with Windows via mouse or keyboard of a single computer.
Ie, you share your mouse and keyboard (almost everything you need to access a machine) across multiple systems. You choose and return the PC to receive commands. Thus, the transition from one screen to another is very similar to a system with multiple monitors.
The suggestion is that you position the monitors from two or more systems together and use shared peripherals to control them all.
The Input Director also has a shared clipboard, with which you can copy data to the clipboard from one system, transfer the data to another and paste the content in the desired location.
To function properly, the Input Director requires Windows 2000 with Service Pack 4, Windows XP with Windows Vista or Service Pack 2. All computers must be connected to the network.
STARTING TO USE
See the basics of configuring a master and one slave computer on a network. In summary, the Input Director needs to be configured on a system to add the slave master, set a keyboard shortcut to it and configure the positioning of the secondary display. Already on a slave computer, the Input Director must authorize the master to control it.
Setting Master and Slave
Go to the tab Slave Configuration program. Here you define whether any machine can control the secondary in question or only computers or the network defined by their IP addresses can control it.
Go back to the tab Main and click Enable the Slave to finish the configuration.
Then in the main system, visit the tab Master Configuration. Click Add to add a computer already configured as a slave. Enter the hostname or IP address of the computer in question. You can also assign a keyboard shortcut to access it.
Click “OK”. The Input Director will check the data and, if everything is right, the communication between the systems will be stabilized.
