Do you have multiple trading computers that you need to control? Are you tired of using multiple mice and keyboards to do it? It is possible to use one mouse and keyboard to control all of your Trading Computers. There are two ways to accomplish this task: hardware and software.
The hardware method involves using a device called a KVM switch. This allows you to connect multiple computers to one mouse and keyboard. You simply plug the KVM switch into your Trading Computers and then use the included cables to connect it to your mouse and keyboard. Then, whenever you want to switch between Trading Computers, all you have to do is press a button on the KVM switch.
The software method is a bit more complicated but has some advantages over the hardware method. First, it doesn’t require any extra hardware. Second, it’s usually cheaper than buying a KVM switch. And third, it generally provides more flexibility and is much more seamless when transferring between different computers.
At Trading Computers, we recommend Synergy software as it is compatible with all sorts of operating systems (Windows, Mac, Linux), and it’s very easy to set up. All the computers you want to control with the Synergy software will need to be connected to the same network, but you can imagine it’s pretty sweet when it is set up. You can be trading while responding on your laptop to an email, all using the same keyboard and mouse. Also, as a bonus, you can copy and paste between the computers, which makes transferring files a snap.
