eRIC G4 - Features and Benefits
Automatic Detection of Mouse Motion,
Most KVM switches require the customer to manually
adjust the mouse motion and mouse acceleration
settings for all connected target servers for each KVM
user. eRIC G4’s automatic mouse detection
automatically adjusts to the server’s mouse settings,
making manual configuration unnecessary.
Mouse Emulation for PS/2®, USB
eRIC G4 automatically emulates either PS/2® (with the
included PS/2 cable) or USB mice, depending on the
server requirements it detects.
Client Application
For controlling the eRIC G4 the remote client only
requires an OS with Java™ VM. Alternatively there is a
native client for Windows® available.

Through the eRIC G4 you can access a serial device via
Telnet or SSH. You can additionally power on, power off
