I want to use full disk encryption with pre-boot authentication (Truecrypt) and somehow remotely enter the pre-boot password. KVM switch is apparently what I need.
There seem to be billion different types of KVM switches, so which kind should I get?
I have an ADSL modem connected to a router running OpenWRT (router has a USB port, haven't really used it so I don't know if it's any good) connected to a desktop computer.
- It'd be nice if I could plug in a laptop to the KVM and use my desktop mouse and keyboard to control my laptop and get the laptop's video output on my desktop monitor.
- I might purchase another monitor to go along with my current one, so dual monitor usage would be a plus (referring to the previous point)
- No super expensive, enterprise grade solutions (I'm a student and a home user)
I'd appreciate if anyone using a KVM switch for similar purposes would share the details of their setup.
Also if there are other things you think I should consider when buying a KVM switch, please share.
Is printer and other USB device sharing possible with a KVM?
