Computer/Server Installation
Figure 3. Computer/Server Installation
2.1.1 Connecting KVM switch to the host system
In order to connect the KVM switch of the host system performs the following steps:
Step 1. Power up you KVM Switch by connecting the power cord to it.
Step 2. Connect the shared USB keyboard, mouse and speaker as well as other shared USB devices to
the KVM switch.
Step 3. Connect each of your computers to the KVM switch, using the DVI video cable and USB
(Type A-to-Type B) cable and audio cables).
Step 4. Power up the connected computers one by one. After your computers are powered up, the
keyboard and mouse will be recognized and now you can begin operating the KVM switch.

2.2
Power Up Sequence
Double check whether all cables/connectors are properly connected. You can check the keyboard
and mouse connectors to ensure the connectors and cables are connected correctly.
The recommended Power Up sequence is as follows: Monitor, KVM Switch, finally the
Computers.
Verify that all servers connected to the KVM Switch are powered on. If any connected servers have
not been powered on, it is okay to do so at this time (servers can be powered on simultaneously).
The KVM Switch emulates both a mouse and keyboard on each port and allows your server to boot
normally.
When power on the KVM switch, you will see the 7-Segment LED displayed Port 1 lights up, and
hear a beep sound. If you encounter an error, check your cable connections for that server and
reboot. If the problem persists, please refer to the chapter “Troubleshooting” in this User Manual.

3. Usage
Now that you have connected your console and servers to your KVM Switch, it is ready for use.
You can control the KVM switch by two methods:
1. Using push buttons located on the LED panel of the KVM Switch
2. Using hot-key commands through the console keyboard
It takes few seconds for the video signal to refresh after switching servers. Re-synchronization of
the mouse and keyboard signals also occurs. This is normal operation and ensures that proper
synchronization is established between the console and the connected servers.

DDC function
The KVM Switch support DDC (Display Data Channel). DDC is a VESA standard for
communication between a monitor and a video adapter. Using DDC, a monitor can inform the video
card about its properties, such as maximum resolution and color depth. The video card can then use
this information to ensure that the computer is presented with valid options for configuring the
display.
Note: The DDC function of KVM Switch will dynamically detect and copy the DDC data from the
monitor, and that data will feed to the host computer during computer startup.
3.3
Hot Plug
The KVM Switch supports “Hot Plug” function for USB keyboard and mouse connectors.
Note:
■ Normally, USB port is Hot pluggable, but some OS (Operation Systems), like Sun
Micro and some Unix and Linux, do not support USB Hot Plug function. If you
apply Hot Plug to this kind of OS, it will cause unpredictable behavior or shut down
the Computer. Before attempting to use Hot Plug, please make sure OS and mouse
software driver support the Hot Plug function.

Firmware Upgrade
Please follow the following procedures:
1. Power on the KVM unit. Use the USB Type-A to Type-B Cable connect between KVM port1
and PC USB port. Then press Hokey + Hokey + F, appears “Beep” sound. At this time, The
KVM console will have no response.
2. The KVM now will be into upgrade mode, waiting for firmware download.
3. Unplug the KVM mouse and Keyboard, Connect the mouse to the Computer directly, Run
“Firmware Upgrade Utility.exe”

5. Troubleshooting
1.
No LED display on KVM Switch
■
Make sure the power adapter plugged into the KVM Switch. If the LED’s still won’t light,
perform soft reset to KVM switch.
■
2.
3.
Power cycle KVM switch.
The computer has started up, but keyboard or mouse won’t work
 Make sure your keyboard and mouse work fine if directly plugged into the computer.
 Please unplug and plug in the USB connector, wait few seconds for USB bus emulations
and start up process to cmplete.
 Do not press any keys on the keyboard while the selected computer is booting up.
Otherwise it might cause the keyboard error or keyboard is not detected at Host side.
 Try a different keyboard, but use only 101/102/104-key keyboard.
 Power cycle KVM switch.
 Avoid moving the mouse or pressing the mouse buttons when switching ports.
No video signal is displayed on the LCD monitor.
■ Connect another monitor directly to the server to verify that your monitor is functioning
properly.
■ Please check if all connectors are connected properly
■ The power adapter is not connected to the KVM switch.
■ See next item, make sure the computer VGA output resolution match with the monitor’s
4.
resolution
The computer resolution does not match the monitor’s resolution
■
■
Make sure the resolution works fine if directly connect the monitor to the computer.
Please turn off the computer, wait few seconds then turn on again. Notice that during
computer startup, it will try to obtain the information of the connected monitor resolution
from its related port. So before computer startup, the monitor and KVM switch should be
already ON and running.
■
The DDC function of KVM Switch will dynamically detect and copy the DDC data from
the monitor that attached to the LOCAL console port, and that data will feed to the host
computer during computer startup.
■
The recommended Power ON sequence is as follows: monitor, KVM Switch, finally the
computers.

6. Glossary
The following definitions are used throughout this User Manual.
■
Auto-Scan: A mode of operation where the KVM switch scans from one port to another, on an
ongoing basis, as configured by the user.
■
Console: The all-in-one term for the keyboard, video monitor, mouse, and audio connected to
a KVM switch.
■
Console Port: An interface receptor on the KVM switch for the console to connect to the
KVM switch via cables.
■
Control: When discussing switching between ports, control means that the console is capable
of sending input to the server. Control requires that the console also has focus on the port, and
is viewing it.
■
DDC: Short for Display Data Channel, a VESA standard for communication between a
monitor and a video adapter. Using DDC, a monitor can inform a computer’s video card about
its properties, such as maximum resolution and color depth, to ensure that the user is presented
with valid options for configuring the display.
■
■
HID: Human Interface Device, the USB device class that includes keyboards and mice.
Host/Computer Port: An interface receptor on the KVM switch for the computer/server to
connect to the KVM switch via cable.
■
KVM: Literally “Keyboard Video Mouse”, this term refers to technology that allows two or
more computers to be controlled by one keyboard, video monitor, and mouse; some switches
that use KVM technology enable sharing of other peripherals such as audio speakers,
microphones, and printers.
■
KVM Switch: A device that allows a user to access and control multiple servers from a single
console. It has at least one console port and multiple server ports.
