KVM over Ethernet

 

 

KVM over Ethernet, or KVM over IP, allows users to control machines by means of their Internet or Local Area Networks. Software in the host PC converts the keyboard, video and mouse signals into IP packets that are sent over the network. At the receiving end of the network, the KVM Over IP switch connected to the network and to the other computers then converts the IP packets back into KVM signals.
