How does the target laptop identify the TinyPilot(connected to Host laptop))
How does the target laptop identify the TinyPilot(connected to Host laptop) as ?
Does it identify tiny pilot as a normal KVM? or as a device trying to access its data
Are any (abnormal device connected ) logs(event log) created on connecting through tinypilot
Currently I am connected to a regular kvm i.e. target laptop( containing Cisco anyconnect - VPN) connected to regular KVM(4x1) kvm(not to another laptop) and is working good.

Thanks for reaching out!
The target device will see a few devices attach:
- A Generic Plug 'n Play Monitor (for video output)
- A USB hub with the following attached:
- A generic USB keyboard
- A generic USB mouse
I've never seen reports of software reporting TinyPilot as a suspicious device, though it doesn't do anything to hide its identity. It sets a manufacturer string to "TinyPilot."

I've never tried that, so I'm not sure.
Is there a reason you want to do a direct Ethernet connection instead of connecting both to normal networking gear like a switch or router?
Its just my router is away from me in another floor and have no ethernet through the walls
looking for any other possible way to connect the two laptops well within my room. (I cannot use software, nor configure ethernet connectivity on either laptop )
target laptop being a company laptop, with several restrictions.
Startech NOTECONS02 (kvm to usb ) works just below fine, and has rendering issues, and is not satisfactory.
KVM2USB3.0 doesnt even work
I'm in the same situation.
Using one laptop (my own where I'm admin) which can be physically connected to the target laptop (work laptop very restricted) and wanting to myself be totally remote physically away from both but have remote control
Hadn't seen any clear solution until Tiny Pilot
