    I heard about a device you can buy that will allow you to take a PC and have up to six other users simultaneuosly share that PC by allow you your own monitor, keyboard and mouse. You are actually using the same applications on the one PC at the same time with the others.

    I need this for my MAC to share with another MAC. I have applications with single user license and I do not want to buy for the other MAC.

    Please help me search for this type device.

    I would think that for Network usage, you would have to have the appropriate license for most software. Maybe it is different for most Mac software though. What it sounds like you are talking about is a KVM switch. But that would allow you to use either of two or more sets of Keyboard Video and mouse with one computer or possibly one set of Keyboard Video and Mouse with more than one computer. Such as these http://www.newegg.com/ProductSort/SubCategory.asp?SubCategory=143. Or is it possible to Network the Macs and share programs similar to a Windows XP computer.
