•

•
Remote real-time access to servers with full control by keyboard, video monitor
and mouse (KVM) of a single local computer from anywhere at any time. In
addition, KVM function is based on BIOS-level access, therefore, even the server
OS is down, the KVM module can still work to provide around-the-clock remote
monitor and diagnosis through GUI (Web-based Graphical User Interface).
Advanced server management functions including “remote power on/off/reset”,
“remote hardware health monitoring” and “system event log”.
Allows administrators to share the date saved in a local drive (floppy, CD/
DVD-ROM, flash device, HDD) to target servers, which makes data-sharing
convenient.
We recommend to use LAN port 3 (dedicated LAN) or LAN port 1 (shared LAN)
for server management.
