    Hi,

    We use the HP IP KVM switches for much the same reasons you are thinking of
    using them. I'm going to agree with Steve that the mouse tracking is
    horrible but as long as you also have terminal services running this is a
    great alternative to walking to the server room.

    cheers,
    Jacques
