Remote Installation
Initial Settings
The following section provides instructions for setting the IP address for the
OmniView SMB Remote IP Device.
Step 1 Identifying the IP Address
Once your IP Device has been connected to your network and is powered
up, a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server on your network
will automatically assign the IP Device an IP address, gateway address, and
subnet mask.
To identify the IP address on your network, use the MAC address or unique
device number located on the back of the IP Device. If no DHCP server is found
on your network, the IP Device will boot with the following static IP address:
192.168.2.155.
If you want to connect more than one IP Device to the same network and there is
no DHCP server available, connect each IP Device to your network one at a time
and change the static IP address of each unit before connecting the next unit.
Note: If a DHCP server later becomes available on your network, the IP
Device will take a new IP address from the DHCP server. To keep the
original static IP address, you will need to disable DHCP (see page 19).

Glossary
The following definitions are used throughout this User Manual.
Client Computer: The computer being used to access the Switch remotely over
a TCP/IP connection.
Console: The all-in-one term for the keyboard, video monitor, and mouse
connected to a KVM switch.
Console Port: Receptors for the console to connect to the KVM switch.
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.
DHCP: Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol. An Internet protocol that allows
nodes to dynamically acquire (“lease”) network addresses for periods of
time rather than having to pre-configure them. DHCP greatly simplifies the
administration of large networks, and networks in which nodes frequently join
and depart.
Daisy-Chain: A configuration of multiple KVM switches that are connected one
to another in a series. A KVM-switch daisy-chain uses common settings to allow
seamless, complex interactions between multiple consoles for control over
many servers.
Host Computer: The computer connected directly (locally) to the IP Device.
49
Glossary
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.
MAC: Media Access Control. In computer networking, a MAC address is a
unique identifier attached to most forms of networking equipment.
Port: An interface receptor on a server through which you can attach a device or
plug in a device cable.
