Dell rackmount KVM keyboard controls


I'm working in a new clients office that has a Dell KVM switch attached to a Dell rackmount keyboard/monitor setup.

There are no controls on he KVM, an I have no idea which keyboard controls will activate or allow access to the KVM interface -- or switch to other desktops that are connected.

I've tried some standard things:  (double Scroll lock, double control, etc.) but I'm having no luck.

I can't determine the model number, but it is an older one.  Nothing fancy, just 16 ports with VGA and PS2 cables.

Any hints would be greatly appreciated!!

Not sure of old Dells, but SysRq (Print Scrn without control) works on some models of KVM.
