Hi guys,

I am looking for a rackmountable KVM switch with these features:
- Rackmountable
- Supports at least 8 devices
- PS/2 support
- Audio support
- AT, 5 Pin needs to work with a PS/2 - AT converter

Especially the last point is difficult. So far I have 2 KVMs from Belkin (4 ports each). One of them is a little older works with my PS/2 and AT style computers. However, the other one only works with PS/2 and USB.

You guys have any recommendations for a good KVM?

Thx!

So I found this KVM from Aten:

https://www.aten.com/de/de/products/kvm/rack- … uMaAn3GEALw_wcB

It seems to support everything I need. Does anyone know, whether also AT style 5 Pin will work?
If not, any suggestions how to resolve that? Workaround?

Please add:
- Wheel mouse support

Additional information:
If you want to run USB based computers too, you can install an USB to PS/2 converter on each USB computer.
PS/2 - AT converters are passive and exist in both directions.

So I ordered the Aten KVM and it has all the listed features and also supports wheel mouse. I do not know whether there any other KVMs that fulffill all the requirements, but the Aten CS1758 model works perfect.
