I've also had excellent success with fairly inexpensive IOGear MiniView KVMs.
In fact, I'm typing this through one right now. I've used 2-port, 4-port and 8-
port, and have never had an issue, running both FreeBSD and Windows through
them. I've used a Cat5 extender (from StarTech, IIRC) with the 8-port version
with no problem. By contrast, some 2- and 4-port LinkSys KVMs I tried a few
years ago were consistently flakey.
I did try a StarTech KVM once, and it had some problems that retired it to the
spare equipment cabinet. It was not the model Tamouh had success with, but a
wired model that was set up to handle both PS/2 and USB keyboards and mice.
(Most seem to be one or the other.) It seemed like a good idea at the time.
