    2012 iMac, Mavericks
    2014 macbook Air, Yosemite

    I have an iMac work station with a secondary HP Dream Color monitor hooked up DVI-D or VGA. Wired Mouse, wired keyboard, headphones.

    I want to monitor my Air on that secondary monitor. I'd like to also work on my System A but monitor system B while I work.
    So this may be some type of independent switch?
    Not sure just starting to hash this out. Any ideas?
    Thanks in advanced.

    I would just use Screen Sharing - unless you have some requirements that would make that unworkable.

    That is an interesting idea.

    How would I work on System A while monitoring and listening to System B? Is that possible?

    I suppose I would drag the shared screen over to the secondary monitor? Do I hard wire this together

    System A is not on any network for security.
    Thanks for the idea.
