Linux: Share keyboard over network

Linux: Share keyboard over network

As the title suggests, I want to use a remote keyboard locally. The remote keyboard should be usable in a TTY and, if possible, in the X-Server as well. Are there any drivers (kernel modules) emulating a "fake" keyboard with network transparency?

"Take a look at Synergy.

Synergy is Free and Open Source Software that lets you easily share
your mouse and keyboard between multiple computers, where each
computer has its own display. No special hardware is required, all you
need is a local area network. Synergy is supported on Windows, Mac OS
X and Linux. Redirecting the mouse and keyboard is as simple as moving
the mouse off the edge of your screen."
