Anyone know of a small, lightweight solution to send keystrokes from one PC to another PC over an internal network? I want to be able to send all types of keystrokes, including the modifier keys and the Windows key.

Not looking for a remote access solution, but something that will just send keystrokes to another machine.

The computers are running Windows 7.

What operating systems are you running on your network? – iglvzx Feb 28 '12 at 4:28
Are you looking for a keylogger? (program that runs in background that captures and records keystrokes, stores them in a "log" and periodically sends the log over LAN) Or are you looking at sending the keystrokes in realtime? BTW this is most usually associated with malware / spyware :-/ – Joshua Feb 28 '12 at 4:58 – Julien Feb 28 '12 at 5:06
@Julien That is an iOS application to send keystrokes to a PC. White Phoenix is looking for a PC to PC solution. If Mobile Mouse supports PC to PC, please elaborate. – iglvzx Feb 28 '12 at 5:40
Sorry, missed the PC to PC part. Get the android version of mobile mouse and use bluestacks to run it on windows. Clunky! – Julien Feb 28 '12 at 13:02

For windows to windows, mouse without borders works well, and simply. Despite the name it does keyboard as well

Synergy lets you share a mouse and keyboard between multiple computers. It's not as general as what you might be looking for, but it might be good enough.
