KVM over IP

Hi there,
I have a KVM switch Dell 2160AS that has KVM over ip capability. I do not know how to configure this so that I can access my servers connected to KVM switch from my desktop over rdp or so???
can someone give me a procedure to configure this so that I can access my servers from my desktop PC using KVM switch over IP?

Thanks and Regards,

To use KVM over IP or PC over IP you need a KVM that is capable of encoding the video stream from one of the attached systems as IP traffic and placing it on the network for a remote client to view.

The 2160as is not able to do this. The 2160as will only allow viewing of any attached servers on the built in console ports.
