Real KVM functions - Will MwoB work with one monitor and multiple computers?

MwoB is often used in the same breath as KVM, but I wonder if MwoB can use one keyboard, one video monitor, and one mouse to control upto three other computers that don't have a monitor attached? Is this possible?

Sorry but Mouse Without Borders does not support that, this software KVM is for sharing keyboard/mouse/clipboard only.

Will Mouse Without Borders switch the keyboard and mouse if I can switch the PCs to the single monitor using the input selector on the monitor?  In other words, are multiple monitors required?

This is armchair computing at it's best, but I think it should work. MWB handles the keyboard and mouse switching and the input selector handles the monitor to PC connections.

Just be sure to disable Easy Mouse in the options, so you don't wander off the edge of the screen. You can set it to switch between the machines using ctrl+alt+2 or ctrl+alt+F2.
