Oh, I've seen adapters like that. I have tons. They probably still
come with USB peripherals. However, they just take a single USB input
and push it to a single PS/2 output...
- USB device (e.g. mouse) <--adapter--> PS/2 port
I tried one that I have, and it doesn't work (as per original post).
I assume that it has something to do with the fact that this KVM puts
both mouse and keyboard over the same USB wire, so what I need isn't
the adapter itself as much as the device that takes kbd+mouse over
USB and spits out the two different signals to two different wires.
Fortunately, as stated above, I found one.
