Hi guys,

I really would like to go wireless for my keyboard and mouse on the Octane. I have those old school green and purple usbtops2 converters made by MS. I was hoping someone here has tried this and could perhaps suggest a compatible keyboard/mouse, apparently they need to have the ps2 protocol support built in to work.

Thanks,

ps/2 to usb converters are hit or miss - I've had some dongles that work and other that don't - I was never able to figure if there was a commonality to them or not

Ciao! Recommended I try Synergy 1.3.1 from neko_obsolete due to compatibility issues
I installed this and then put Synergy 1.9.1 on my Windows install and 'Bridge' on my Arch linux install. Everything works perfectly!
