Daisy-chain configuration using DKVM-450
The D-Link PS2/USB 8/16 Port Combo KVM Switch is a high-end local remote management solution which
allows you to control up to 4096* PCs from a single console.
Versatile Management
Toggle between clients using the front panel buttons,
keyboard hotkeys, or On-screen Display (OSD)
menu. The on-screen menu allows you to label
each channel with a descriptive name, providing
clear and easy navigation. A convenient Auto-Scan
function allows you to automatically toggle between
multiple computers sequentially at preset intervals.
The front panel LEDs assist with workstation/server
status monitoring. Green LEDs indicate that systems
are online, while separate red LEDs indicate when a
particular system has been selected for management
via console.
Convenient Installation
The sturdy metal chassis is mountable in a standard
19” rack. Daisy chain multiple KVM switches together
up to three levels deep; cascaded units require no
special configuration and automatically configure
themselves as master or slave. Target workstations
can be connected via keyboard/mouse or PS/2 using
a custom combo cable. A PS/2 or USB keyboard is
emulated on each terminal allowing all attached
computers to successfully boot without keyboard
errors. Hot-pluggable connections allow you to add
devices to or remove them from the KVM switch
without the need to shut it down.
