Multiplicity – Operate Multiple PCs with Single Keyboard

Well, this is not the kind of procedure or software tool to hack computers; else Multiplicity is a network tool to control over 9 Personal Computers simultaneously with just a single mouse and keyboard. It is just like to server computer but completely similar. It enables you to drag and drop files between network-enabled PCs.

Now there are two version available – Free and upgraded. Using Multiplicity (Free), one can only control the basic operations, whereas with Multiplicity (Upgraded), one can transfer files, centralize audio, encrypt data, and lock all computers with a single command. The upgraded version costs $39.95 and its worth all those excellent features and tools.

What does Multiplicity do?

Using this network tool, you will be able to transfer formatted content and audio from one-to-one PC or one-to-many PCs or many-to-one PC. It can send sensitive data securely between two or more systems which is very essential in medical and call center operations.

How does it work?

  • The first thing you must do is keep all your PCs connected via Ethernet or Wireless transfer protocol so that they can be controlled together.
  • Download and install the Multiplicity application with simple setup procedure, in all computers that are interconnected.
  • Select the primary PC for controlling and there you enter secondary computer ID and password under “Computers” tab. If you like to control more than one PC, enter their respective computer ID and passwords.
  • Now the Multiplicity application installed on primary PC will have “3x3 Grid” formation with each PC resting on single grid separated by borders.
