Product ID: SV1108IPEXGB
The SV1108IPEXGB 1 Port USB PS/2 Server Remote Control IP KVM Switch with Virtual Media lets you control a USB or PS/2 server remotely over a LAN or the Internet.
The 1 port KVM over IP includes all necessary KVM cables, and offers KVM control from the BIOS-level onward. Reboot, monitor the entire boot process, and interact with your connected system easily. RS232 support also lets you connect to a serial console device via Telnet or SSH.
Virtual Media lets you execute files via USB from the remote console as if they were local to the connected server. Perfect for remote driver updates, patches, application or OS installation.
The Java-based browser utility ensures the IP remote control unit is compatible with many current web browsers, and almost any operating system on the market.
Multiple integrated security features ensure a reliable single port IP KVM connection, including password-protection, IP/MAC address filtering, external authentication (RADIUS, LDAP, LDAPS, Active Directory) and advanced encryption (56-bit DES, 168-bit 3DES, 256-bit AES, 128-bit RC4).
Backed by a StarTech.com 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.

Monitors may begin flickering when they receive a signal of insufficient quality. There are a few potential fixes available that will help to improve the signal quality in order to eliminate flickering:
Note: This device has Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) enabled by default, and will be assigned an IP address by your router when connected to your network. View the router's DHCP table to determine the IP address.
You should not upgrade your device's firmware if you do not have any issues with the functionality of your device. The only time you should consider an upgrade is if you are experiencing a problem with the device, and you have confirmed that the firmware addresses this problem. You can confirm this is the case by reviewing the documentation included with the firmware or by consulting with our Technical Support team. Incorrectly upgrading firmware can result in diminished performance so it is best to contact StarTech.com if you would like to perform this operation.
KVM stands for Keyboard Video Mouse and KVM switches allow you to switch the use of a keyboard, display and mouse between multiple computers. KVM switches also commonly let you switch audio and USB devices between computers.
There are different types of KVM switches as well.
Standard box and cable KVM switches are a simple way to switch the use of a keyboard, display, and mouse between multiple computers. Multi-monitor KVM switches allow you to switch multiple displays between computers, and IP KVM switches allow you to remotely control the KVM switch and connected computers over a network.
Here are some important things to consider before purchasing a KVM switch.
There are a couple of other important things you may want to take note of:
It can be difficult to tell which ones are right for the KVM switch you are interested in. How can you tell which KVM cables you require? How can you tell if a KVM switch requires proprietary cables? How do these cables work?
Standard KVM Switches and Cables
Note: You will need one bundle of KVM cables per computer you want to connect to the KVM switch.
Standard KVM switches have no special cable requirements. If you have spare video and PS/2 or USB cables, you can use them to hook up the KVM switch to your computers. StarTech.com still sells KVM cable packages, but they are just for the convenience of buying them in bundles and usually involve some savings. Keep in mind that even if you have some of the cables you need, it still might be advantageous to buy the bundle.
KVM Switches with Opposite Gender Video Connections
Some KVM switches use male video connections for the computers and female video connections for the console ports. In this case you simply need a video extension cable, or a KVM cable package appropriate to the KVM switch. This is so you cannot accidentally plug cables from your computer into the console ports.
KVM Switches Requiring Proprietary Cables
KVM switches can also use proprietary KVM cables to connect to the individual computers. This is often done with larger KVM switches and KVM switches intended for a server environment. These cables use a proprietary pinout which does not conform to the video standard in use, as the cable carries both the video and PS/2 or USB data along a single cable.
If you are unsure whether or not you need special cables, complete the following:
Note: If there are no PS/2 or USB ports on the back of the KVM switch other than for the console, you will require proprietary cables.
If at this point you require further assistance in deciding which cables to purchase with your StarTech.com KVM switch, contact our technical support team.
