I have a client who uses 2 macs & wants to share a USB keyboard & mouse between them & be able to switch back & forth without unplugging & replugging. Does anyone know of a retail USB switchable 2-out, or will I have to build one from scratch?

There's also a software solution if the two Macs are networked. KMRemoteControl will let a keyboard and mouse connected to one Mac be used to control another Mac with it's own screen.

I tried it out a couple of years ago and it worked well. I stopped using it because I decided I wanted to only have one monitor as well, so I use Apple Remote Desktop to remote control the other Mac now.

Thanks to all who responded - I have located what I need. Ehmac.ca is so great … I'm a happy camper!
