Best method to connect multiple PCs on a private LAN
I have five Desktop Win 10 PCs and two Chrome Laptops around my own desk and I intend to "connect" these on my own LAN.
At any one time, I can connect up to four units to the GBit smart switch and I also hope to enable Wake on LAN. I have two spare GBit (5 & 8 port) smart switches so really, the sky's the limit.
Two devices only support WiFi so I imagine Wake on LAN can't work for them.
I've been using Microsoft's "Mouse Without Borders" to allow control of four devices from the same keyboard and mouse but that's becoming tedious as I must "rotate" between the screens which are in two tiers - one even has two monitors. It would be far more convenient to share everything with my two main monitors.
I also support an overseas family member's MacBook.
Two questions really;
Primarily - Am I in danger of being assessed as a "commercial" user?
Secondly - Is anybody convinced my scheme can't work, or needs an alternate plan? (Is that Three?)😎
Thanks in anticipation
