OK, I've walked into the middle of an issue.  Predecessor at a job I'm working bought a HP IP Console G2 Switch and then Cyberview dongles.  Anyone know if there is a way to get these to work together?  The client I'm working with bought these several months ago and won't be able to return the dongles.  I called HP and they said they don't support using the HP Switch with third party dongles.  Any ideas would be helpful.

One possibility is to scratch the HP switch and go to a compatible Cyberview product.  However, Cyberview products are very expensive, e.g., "CyberView MU 3 User 32 Port CAT6 KVM Switch, $2198.00."

If this is feasible in your situation, I would recommend consulting with Cyberview's sales engineers before buying anything, and definitely ask if a loaner can be arranged to confirm compatibility with your specific situation.
