Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. This IP KVM Switch is for use with a USB keyboard and mouse console. As converting from PS/2 is never a good idea, we would suggest investing in a USB Keyboard and Mouse. If you wish to continue to use the PS/2 keyboard and mouse, there are a few IP KVMs that will support that connection. One is the https://www.kvm-switches-online.com/dkx2-232.html.
If however, you are connecting to a PS/2 style computer, you can use the PS/2 style ROC dongle - 0SU51078, to attach the computer to the switch.
