Hello Experts, I've just started a new job they currently have an Avocent DSR1021 KVM Switch in the server room.  I'm drawing a blank on how to toggle between displays.  I'm used to tapping "Scroll Lock" "Scroll Lock" then either up arrow / down arrow.

ATEN / Arrow Electronics Case Study
Arrow Electronics was searching for a KVM (Keyboard/Video/Mouse) switch that could display on one single monitor the current status of all units being tested on the rack.

I have a KVM switch for the monitor, keyboard and mouse and it also has audio connections. The two audio wires from the switch have the green connectors, one to each system.

My speakers have another wire which is a USB power cord.

The KVM solves the two green speaker wires.
How to solve the need to connect the USB power cord (speaker power cord) ?

What amount of power is feeding the speakers from the pc?
Small current such that a Y connector could be used?

This location has two separate networks, one for office work, and the other network is a Point of Sale system.
They would like a computer from each network to share a USB printer.

Is there a smart USB switch that would enable this?

Thanks.

Our VRTx Chassis won't load the CMC right from startup.Spins for about 5 minutes here
After about 5 minutes it times out and says "CMC not responding" on the little LCD screen. CMC not responding
Once it gets to the not responding point, Pushing the power button on the chassis or any of the blade servers inside does nothing (naturally).Front of vrtx when "CMC not responding is on the LCD"
When consulting the VRTx diagnostics document (http://en.community.dell.com/cfs-file/__key/communityserver-discussions-components-files/177/VRTX-Diagnostics_5B00_1_5D00_.pdf) I found that "When CMC is active and running, and there are no
problems, the bottom LED is blue." Which it is as you can see in the picture: CMC card light codes. Solid green and blue.

I have scoured the internet with no luck on this issue. Since we bought this off eBay a while ago it doesn't have any support. Dell said it was a refurbished unit and they can't help me. So I'm here posting this!

Another thing I tried was also from the troubleshooting doc was to recover the firmware. When connecting to the com port in the back of the vrtx chassis, It doesn't seem to want to connect to putty at all. I may have not done that part correctly but as it is, the chassis doesn't have an IP address so the com port seems to be the only way to get in if that was possible.

Help is greatly appreciated at this point. Thanks in advance!

I have a number of Dell R710s. I have a really annoying behaviour which is when one of them boots it is hanging. They are all connected to an ATEN KVM which I swapped thinking it was my old KVM causing the issue. The hang is clearly being caused by the USB cable from the KVM being plugged in at the time of boot.
I have so far:
- Change the KVM cable
- Change the port the cable is plugged into on the KVM
- Updated the BIOS
- I think I have updated all the firmware’s (e.g. DRAC, etc.).
- Been through the BIOS on one of the working R710 and the hanging R710 and cannot see any obvious configuration differences.

Only difference I have been able to identify is all of the working R710s have a PERC6i raid controllers and the hanging one has a H700.

Has anybody seen this before or have any ideas?

Thanks

Dear All
The ratio of vertical and horizontal is not correct, which shows short and flat pictures and words in my second monitor of windows 7. After I tried all resolutions for it, it still does not work well. Any expert can give some suggestion ? Thanks

Connect further...control easier
Connect further...control easier

With the ATEN CE624, you can now enjoy a high-quality visual experience powered by HDBaseT technology and the convenience of a single Cat6 cable to transmit uncompressed video with zero latency and multi-streaming for dual-view applications where remote access is required.

From everything I have read about IP KVM it seems it is basically a computer with some specialized hardware/built-in software - all blackboxed.  Would I not be able to make my own IP KVM with a laptop and some special adapters and some software on the laptop? I am agnostic as to whether it would be Windows or Linux that I would accomplish this with. I am also indifferent between wired or wireless if that is a possibility.

I have 3 separate computers and I would like to control them from 1 keyboard/mouse. (SEE DIAGRAM)

Qustion1: Please recommend a KVM switch using a usb cabled setup where the KB/Mouse are using a usb to connect to the switch.

Question2: Please recommend a switch using a wireless setup where the KB/Mouse are wirelessly (not even sure this is a word - LOL) connected to the switch.

I prefer the wireless setup.KVM-Switch-Needed.ppt

Hi experts!

I need to use a software similar to speedfan. Speedfan does its job, but occasionally produces weird results. Whatever you recommend should be personally tested on Windows 8.1 x64. It's only for controlling ASUS Mainboards CPU fans, by the way. The ASUS Software does not run on 8.1

When attempting to flash a Belkin KVM Omni view F1DA108T using a system running Windows 7, I receive an error message stating that “windows NT port direct access not found!!!”

Can this be done using windows 7 or does this need to be done on an older system?  The device manual indicates that the computer needs to be running ME or XP.

Hi,
I have this network cabinet that has built in cooling and ventilation where I want to keep my PCs to cool properly and to reduce noise in the room. The cabinet is in one corner of the room and I have two desks on the other two corners of the room.

My goal is to be able to keep the PCs (2 desktop PCs and 1 laptop for now) in the cabinet and from there to run a CAT 5 or any other cable to extend to the two desks and only have my double monitors+ keyboard + mouse on each desk. (ab. 30ft away from the cabinet).
PC1 and Laptop should go to Desk1. PC2 will go to Desk2.

My question is: what kind of a KVM switches\extenders do I need to have in order to accomplish my goal?  

The PCs have both dual DVI + VGA video cards plus  also USB and PS2 ports, the laptop has only 1 VGA port and 3 USB ports

I have been researching this for some time and there are plenty of KVM\extenders via coax or Cat5 (for the extension) but I am not quite sure which product will accomplish the entire goal without compromising on any feature - to be able to use the computers from the two desks using the 2 monitors , to be able also to get the sound to the desk so I can have the speakers on the desk and not hooked up to the PCs and lastly, to be able get from the PCs the correct screen resolution over the distance (at least 1920x1080) without any loss in video quality.

Please see the attached pic, hope it will help to visualize the setup.

Thanks for your input,
RICUser

A.   What is the best build for the computer to control content on 5 screens?

B.  How to push the video content to the 4 big screen tvs which are the lenth of 30 yards away from the computer?

Thanks.

Supports up to 4K resolution!
Supports up to 4K resolution!

The VS192 2-Port 4K DisplayPort Splitter is perfect for anyone who needs to send one source of DisplayPort high definition video to two or four DisplayPort displays. The VS192 can split and also expand DisplayPort audio/video signal on two or four DisplayPort monitors.

I have 2 pcs that are sharing one monitor. The monitor has built-in software to switch from one pc to the other. I want to be able to have both pcs running and be able to use my wireless mouse and keyboard with both - not at the same time, obviously. Currently, I have to pull both receivers out (keyboard & mouse) and re-insert them in to the other pc. I've explored many options. I do not want to use a traditional KVM device. I want to maintain my current, direct VGA and DVI cable connections to my monitor. I'm really not concerned about audio either. What I'm looking in to now is a USB hub (with a manual switch) that can be shared with 2 pc's . . . where I would just keep both receivers in the hub. Then, when wanting to switch pcs, I first click on my screen to switch pc's (with built in HP display software) and then press the manual switch on the hub to make the wireless mouse and keyboard active on that pc. I've just barely started researching this option. Need input from experts. Is it doable? Any recommendations on a good USB hub with this functionality?

Hello Experts

I have a customer request where the situation is like this:

left side of the table pc1 and display1
right side of the table pc2 and display2

Both pc's are used for 3D CAD rendering but are located in different domains and do not have connectivity to each other.
Atm each pc has a single 27" Dell U2713HM with WQHD (2560 X 1440), available connectors are: dp, dvi, vga, hdmi

The customer wishes now to be able to use both display's from either pc1 or pc2 (pc1 and its own display plus extended diplay to pc2's monitor and vice versa) at full resolution through main CAD graphiccard.
Graphiccard is AMD FirePro W5000 with 2dp and 1dvi.

Easiest way would be to connect both pc's with both display's, but since switching input mode on the screen is unconfortable the customer wishes to have something like a kvm switchbox or just a display switchbox.

I havent found a matching device.
Do you have any suggestions?

Summary:
support for QWHD (2560 X 1440)
only digital and preferably dp (no vga)
easy switching
only display switching (no other devices e.g. mouse or keyboard are connected)
can be 2 seperate devices

This setup has to be installed at 20 workspaces.

I'd be happy to find comments and hints on this. Especially if you have positiv experience with such a device or setup.

cheers

I'm trying to get our workbench a bit more organized. It seems that we're always working on more and more boxes, and I'd like to save some table space and mount a couple monitors on the wall, each with its own keyboard and mouse attached so that when we bring a box in, it's pretty much plug and go.  I saw Ergotron makes one but it's well over $400.  Any ideas or suggestions on something a bit more affordable?

I have a client with 1 server and 30 workstations. We want to add a IP KVM for the server a model aten KN 1000. The KN 1000 is setup and working local and has a LAN IP setup already.

Clients LAN is 10.10.1.0-255 Subnet 255.255.255.0

The LAN side of the firewall is 10.10.1.254

The WAN side of the firewall is 10.1.10.10

The client is using comcast buisness class internet with a SMC modem. The modem has it's public ip and it has 4 ports with DHCP and it's givign the firewall the 10.1.10.10 address.

They also have another pc that is on this 10.1.10.xxx network (LAN of the Modem) and it is used to admin the modem and report it's status.

Comcast has the option of passing the public ip through to the LAN side ports of the modem and direct into the firewall so the firewall would have the public ip as it's WAN address and not the 10.1.10.10 address.

First question is I assume this is a double NAT setup? Any issues with this? Been running a couple months and no issues they have seen. They like the management capabilty to manage the modem and using the pass through option you lose that and all troubleshooting has to be done on the phone with comcast.

They have a spare modem on site that can be replaced and will auto configure with the current setup but the the passthrough option comcast has to be involved.

The firewall is Cisco WRVS4400N and I am tryinmg to figure out how I can control the IP KVM from the internet. I need to be able to VPN into the network to …
