Quick Start Guide
For this Quick Start Guide, we offer three different easy step-by-step ways, letting you setup
this unit very quickly.
The First Way : If you don’t have DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol)
Step 1. Connect the CAT-5 cable to the LAN port on the rear panel of Digital KVM via IP. And,
connects the opposite end of the CAT-5 cable to the hub.
Step 2. Set the IP address of a computer connected on the same network as Digital KVM via
IP to a similar unused address like 192.168.1.124 and the subnet mask of
255.255.255.0.
a. Right click on "My Network Places", and select "Properties". You will get the
following screen:
b. Right click on "Local Area Connection", and select "Properties" .
i
c. Double click on "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)".
d. Click “Advanced…” , then click “Add…” to add up the IP address of “192.168.1.124”,
and the Subnet mask of “255.255.255.0”.
ii
Step 3. From that computer, open a web browser and go to https://192.168.1.123. Login using
"admin" for both username and password.
Step 4. Click on the Admin/Setup button then Network configuration (IP address,
netmask, gateway). From here you can set the IP address as needed.
The Second Way: If you have DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol)
Step 1. Please have your MAC address. You can find it on a white sticker on the bottom of the
Digital KVM via IP. Here is an example, 00-0E-C5-00-08-1A.
Step 2. Power on the Digital KVM via IP and connected to the network via LAN port on the
rear panel. The DHCP will automatically assign an IP address for the Digital KVM via
IP.
Step 3. Access the DHCP log from your file server. A simple DHCP log looks similar to the
following:
iii
Step 4. From the above DHCP log, you can easily find the DHCP assigned an IP to the Digital
KVM via IP, 192.168.22.4. Once you have located this IP address, do NOT power off
the Digital KVM via IP or your DHCP server since it might lease a different IP
address.
Step 5. Simply open a web browser and type https://192.168.22.4 to access your Digital KVM
via IP. Login using “admin” for both username and password.
The Third Way: Using the HyperTerminal via Serial Port
Step 1. Connect the DB9 RS-232 null modem serial cable (optional) to the serial port on the
rear panel of Digital KVM via IP. And, connects the opposite end of the cable to the
serial port (COM1, COM2…) of your computer.
Step 2. From your computer, select “HyperTerminal” as following.
iv
Step 3. If you never setup your HyperTerminal before, it will ask you to input your phone area
code, please feel free to do so, and then click “OK”, you will get the following screen.
Please type any name you prefer, for example, “abc”.
Step 4. Choose the proper serial port you connect.
v
Step 5. Change “Bits per second” to 115200.
Step 6. Press “Enter”, you will get the following screen.
Step 7. Follow the instruction on the screen. For example, simply type “I” for setting your IP,
type “M” for changing the machine name, and so on. Here is a reminder for you,
please type “W” after you made any change.
