Great idea for freenas once it is setup to run without keyboard and monitor.

Keyboard:

Most systems detect a keyboard connection by monitoring the current flow
through the connector. To trick it, simple wire a 10K ohm resistor
between GND (pin 4) and +5V (pin 5). This is on a standard PC/AT style
connector (the larger 5 pin one). If you have a PS/2 keyboard, you can
either use an adapter to change it to an AT connector, or use the
resistor between pins 3 and 4 of the PS/2 adapter. Note that the
pinout isn’t simply clockwise or counter clockwise:

PC/AT:

PS/2:

1 2

as viewed looking into the connector on the keyboard, not the PC.
where “n” is the notch in the shield.

Monitor:

vga fake adapter:
That is…

red (pin 1) –> 75 ohm resistor –> red return (pin 6)
green (pin 2) –> 75 ohm resistor –> green return (pin 7)
blue (pin 3) –> 75 ohm resistor –> blue return (pin 8)
