Basic Installation Guidelines
N1000 MPC devices are shipped with DHCP as their default IP mode. The IP address is
assigned automatically based on the network DHCP server. If no DHCP server is found,
the unit will use Auto IP mode instead (with a default IP address of
Before using your N1000 MPC unit, it must be configured using the free N-Able device
management software. However, you will not be able to configure units until they are in
the same subnet as the host computer.
The sample steps below show how the required changes (to the host computer’s IP
settings) are made in a Windows environment.
PoE: Connect the unit’s P0 port to an active, PoE-enabled network switch
Steps for IP address configuration:
External power supply: If not using PoE for power, connect a 12V
regulated power supply (part number N9312) to the unit’s two-pin
terminal block plug connector labeled +12V 2A.
PoE: If using PoE to power the unit, you should already have a
network connection.
External power: If not using PoE, connect the P0 port to the
network using an Ethernet cable, or connect the P1 port to the
network with the appropriate cable (fiber transceiver or directattach cable is required for SFP connections).
Daisy-chain configuration: Once network connection is
established to one unit, you can daisy-chain additional units by
connecting Ethernet cables between devices using their P0 and/or
P1 ports. Keep in mind that the number of units supported in this
configuration is limited by bandwidth (total aggregate streams
must be less than 1 Gb/s).
NOTE: PoE power is only supplied to the unit connected directly to
the network. All other units in the daisy-chain must have an
external power supply.

Device Auto-login settings match the unit’s username and password (by selecting N-Able
> Settings from the N-Able tool bar).
NOTE: N1000 MPC units force HTTPS connections, so your web browser may give you a
security warning. N-Able on Windows will ask you to download OpenSSL for Windows to
connect HTTPS.
Basic KVM Setup (N1133A/N1233A models only)
The N1133A Encoders and N1233A Decoders are KVM-capable. By default, USB
connections are enabled and configured to follow video switching. Follow these steps
for basic KVM setup. To learn about some of the more advanced KVM capabilities, see
the section Advanced KVM Setup (with added security features).
On the N1133A Encoder, connect the USB Mini-B port (designated by a laptop
icon) to the computer to be controlled.
Connect the computer’s video output to the Encoder’s HDMI IN port.
On the N1233A Decoder, connect the HDMI OUT to the display.
Connect a USB keyboard and mouse to the Decoder’s USB Standard-A ports (they
can be plugged into either port).
NOTE: For wireless devices, simply plug the wireless signal receivers into these
ports. For keyboard and mouse combos (with a single connection) use the
keyboard port.
Using N-Able, click the Unit Management tab.
Click the Auto Discover button to discover your new devices (if you have not
already done so).
Once discovery is complete (and you see the new units listed in N-Able), click the
Video Matrix tab.
On the matrix, click the common cell for the desired Encoder/Decoder streaming
combination. See the screen shot below for an example.
Click the Take button to make the change to your matrix. The radio button turns
green to indicate the connection was successful.
The following table describes some of the more advanced functionality. It is important
to note that many of these options only appear on the KVM page when USB is enabled
as well as KVM Advanced Settings.
Permission Levels
This feature determines which Decoders can communicate
with which Encoders. A Decoder must have a permission
level that is equal to or greater than the Encoder in order for
communication to be successful.
KVM Encoders table
Use the KVM Encoders table (on the Decoder’s KVM page)
• Let the Decoder know the Encoder passwords it needs to
establish communication.
• Assign Encoder hotkeys.
• Add/remove Encoders from the Decoder’s list.
By default, KVM streams are encrypted with a common
password. You can change the password on the Settings
page of the Encoder. If you change Encoder passwords, you
will need to supply the new information to the Decoders to
allow communication to continue.
A Decoder only receives password information for the
Encoders on the network that have been associated with
that Decoder as mentioned previously.
To use hotkeys for easy switching, enable KVM Directory
Screen Enable on the Decoder’s KVM page. You can now
access the KVM Directory Screen at any time by pressing the
<Scr Lk> button twice on the keyboard connected to the
Decoder. This screen displays all Encoders associated with
that Decoder (and their corresponding hotkey).
Import and export KVM CSV
Multiple Encoders and Decoders can be configured from a
single CSV file (which is generated using the KVM Wizard in
N-Able). Once all changes are made, upload the file to each
unit using its KVM page.Click the Choose File button,
browse to the CSV file you exported from the wizard, and
click the Upload button.
Enabling this cell causes
Conference Room Decoder to listen
to Conference Room Encoder.
Warning! You must assign KVM passwords to your Encoders and Decoders (as well as
change the default login password from admin/password) in order for your system to
be secure.
Click Take to apply changes.
