You'll need 2 VGA cables, and 4 ps/2 cables or 4 USB cables. You need to run a VGA (monitor) cable from each of your towers to the KVM, then one from the KVM to the monitor. Same goes with the keyboard and mouse. One from each tower to the KVM switch and then hook the mouse and keyboard into the KVM. You need ps/2 cords if your mouse/keyboard is ps/2 or USB, if they are USB.

with that box i can only use ps/2, but u said that i need 4 ps/2 leads but would i only need 2 as i just need to connet the towers to the kvm and the mouse/keybourd should already have the leads attached, wouldnt i kneed 3 VGA leads, one from each tower and one into the moniter?

would this be all i need?

should be a vga already attached to the monitor to run to the kvm, so you would only need to run one from each tower to the kvm, and u need to run 2 ps/2 leads from each box to the kvm. One lead for the mouse and one for the keyboard on each tower. I ASSUME they plug into the back, and the front is where the actual mouse/keyboard plug in. There should be four ps/2 plugs coming from the towers on the back.

so one mouse lead and one keyboard lead, for the first tower, and one mouse lead and one keyboard lead for the second tower= 4

This KVM should work fine for what you want..............HTH
