Installation
This section describes how to install the optional Windows-based software and how to
connect your peripherals to the KVM switch. For the best results, make sure that all of the
computers that you want to control are located as close as possible to the KVM switch
and console peripherals (monitor, keyboard, mouse), as this will reduce the length of
cabling required and the chance of interference.
Install the KVM Client application
The KVM Software only supports the Windows operating system. If you use other
operating systems, such as Linux, you can still use the keyboard hotkey ScrLK +
ScrLK or NumLock + NumLock to switch PCs. This hotkey is not available on non-PC
platforms, such as Mac OS, but you can use an IBM keyboard at the console to control
Apple Mac computers.
Note: Hotkey support is not natively supported in Mac OS. If you are running a Mac OS,
you must use the KVM buttons to switch between computers.
1. Insert the provided CD ROM into the CD drive for each of the computers that you
will be connecting to the KVM switch. The installation program USBKVMIn.exe
should run automatically, but if it does not, locate the file on the disk and doubleclick the USBKVMIn. exe icon to launch the application.
2. When the installation is complete, you will see a KVM Switcher icon on the system
tray of your Windows desktop. Right-click the icon to launch the operation menu,
and double-click to evoke the configuration box.
Connect console components to the
KVM Switch (SV211KUSB)
1. Place the KVM switch in close proximity to the keyboard, mouse, and monitor that
you want to use as the shared console controls.
2. Connect the monitor to the blue VGA port on the front panel of the switch.
3. Connect a USB keyboard to the USB Type A connector on the front panel of the
switch, as shown in Figure 1.
4. Connect a USB mouse to the USB Type A connector on the front panel of the switch,
as shown in Figure 1.
5. Optional: Connect speakers to the green 3.5 mm phono connector located on the
front panel of the switch, as shown in Figure 1.
6. Optional: Connect a microphone to the pink 3.5 mm phono connector located on

connector on Computer 1. (If applicable, this is the same connector that you
disconnected the monitor from in step 1. )
3. Connect the opposite end to the VGA port on the back of the KVM switch.
4. Plug the USB portion of the USB + Video Data Cable into an available USB port
on computer 1.
5. Optional: If you want to use audio, connect the Speaker/Microphone combination
cable to the MIC and Speaker out ports. Insert the opposite end of the cable (USB
mini-B) into the port located on the side of the switch denoted as PC1.
6. Repeat the steps to connect any further computers.

Use the KVM Switch
There are three methods of controlling your KVM Switch for PC and Audio/MIC
channel selection:
1. Face-panel buttons
The face-panel button allows you to have direct control over KVM switching operation.
Simply pressing the button will switch to the corresponding PC port and audio/MIC
channel (if enabled). By default, PC port switching and audio/MIC port switching are
bound together.
2. Use a hotkey sequence
These products features both User-definable Hotkeys for PC selection and a Universal
Hotkey Sequence that can be used to switch connected PCs.
•Universal Hotkey Sequence: ScrLk + ScrLk or NumLock+NumLock
•User-definable Hotkey: Ctrl + Alt + [command key]. Refer to the KVM Switching
software section for keys that are eligible to be used as a command key.
3. KVM Switching software: To launch the operation menu, right-click the KVM
Switching icon located in the system tray.
To customize the hotkeys used with the CTRL+ALT comman (for example,
CTRL+ALT+1 = PC1, CTRL+ALT+2 = PC2), select Settings and enter the desired value
into the text box.
Note: ALT, CTRL, SHIFT, CAPS, TAB, ESC, function keys (for example F1 or F2), and edit
keys cannot be selected as hotkeys.

From within the KVM Switcher software, you also have the option to fix the audio/
MIC channel to the selected PC. When you select this option, the audio/MIC channel
will be fixed and become non-switchable without reconfiguration.
Similarly, you can customize the Autoscan feature by selecting the desired Auto
Scan Period from the drop-down menu. The Autoscan period is defined as the time
your KVM switch waits to switch to the next PC.
