    KVM Switch that uses a non Scroll Lock Key Code to switch...anyone?

    I need to switch between 2 computers, but I'm trying to use a barcode scanner to do it, and it can't create the scroll lock command.

    Anyone know of something that doesn't use scroll lock or is programmable?

    Why not just get one that also has a manual switch button to switch between terminals. I have a 4 port one that I got from Best Buy, it's a Linkskey, and has a manual button to switch as well as a hotkey.

    Same with the D-Link DKVM-2U (USB model)...scroll lock switching or a manual push button.

    BTW, no software or drivers needed for that one either.

    Ohh I know, this one has a button too, but we want to automate it for our manufacturing staff to just use the "wand".

    It may be impossible, I fear.

    I have an old IoGear GCS84A KVM switch that uses a double tap of the control key to switch (left ctrl key moves left down the line, right moves right). I don't believe they make them anymore, but possibly you could find an old one on ebay?
