I have two machines on a local network. One is Windows 10, the other is Ubuntu 16.04.
The Linux machine is not my main computer and sits on the other side of my office, with the monitor facing me so I can play Plex or Netflix etc.
I want to know if there is any software I can use to simulate keyboard input on the Linux machine, by sending the input from the Windows machine. In this way I can browse the internet on the other computer (select a new song, or video etc), without having to physically get up and go over to the other machine.
I already have SSH set up between the two if that helps.
I was hoping for a simple command line tool that does something like:
C:/Users/Luke> sendinput 192.168.0.10 "keycode here"
So that I can build my own scripts to automate things. However, I'm not against a GUI-based application either. I want to avoid the overhead of using a remote desktop viewing application.
Any advice or tools you can suggest would be great. I suppose I would need to be able to send combinations of keys, so that I have full access to the keyboard shortcuts available in whatever software I'm using on the Ubuntu machine.
