Abstract

Disclosed is a method with three distinct implementations: an embedded server function, an embedded laptop/workstation function, and a specialized USB device, or "USB key". Benefits include automatically redirecting the console when the USB Device is plugged-in, and reducing the total area needed for the keyboard, mouse, and video connectors.
