Hello Peter,

Based on your email, I'm not really sure if you're going to love this
answer or hate it, but I've solved the "Have USB port, need PS/2 port"
conundrum several times with USB to PS/2 adapters; our computers at
work stopped shipping with PS/2 on them but our KVMs were all PS/2.

_Some_ adapters didn't work for us, but that was just with the
KVMs--probably a voltage thing.  Most keyboards should work properly!

Best Regards,
Andrew Bobulsky
