: Well, the two types are not compatible. Even though I found PC
: versions of Sun keyboards and Sun versions of PC keyboards, I could
: not find anything (like a switchbox) to share one keyboard (preferably
: Sun type 5) between a PC and a SPARCstation.
: Can anyone let me know of such switchboxes ?
Sun sells a box that allows you to use a PC keyboard & mouse on
a SPARC. We bought one for evaluations last year. Except for having
to play chords to invoke the L1-10 keys it was entirely satisfactory.
There are a few third party products that provide similar
functionality. Check the BlackBox or workstation express catalogs.
warning, these things cost a lot more than another keyboard.
