  • MacMall Part #: 7351837 
  • Manufacturer Part #: KV9316A-R2 
  • UPC: 704118947353 
  • Platform: Universal 

Overcome KVM distance limitations at an economical price by using your Ethernet network and the ServSwitch EC with Built-In IP for PS/2 and USB Servers and PS/2 Consoles. The switch enables you to use your Web browser to easily and securely access and control remote servers remotely across any TCP/IP network as if they were local. You can even use the Internet to manage servers from home or the road. And with the new dual-function Reset button, you can perform a power reset or reset all settings back to the defaults.

Remote or local switching is made easy. The switch is compatible with any Java enabled Web browser. Just open the browser, enter the IP address of the switch, and select the server you wish to access. Whats more, this ServSwitch EC is also fully compatible with Virtual Network Computing (VNC) viewers, and a VNC connection opens automatically after login. You can also switch from a local workstation using on-screen menus or hotkeys.

The ServSwitch EC with Built-In IP for PS/2 and USB Servers and PS/2 Consoles doesnt skimp on security either. You get all the features youre looking for such as SSL encryption, SSH tunneling, and RADIUS authentication.

Setup is now even simpler. Simply press the IP Setup button to bring up the new IP On-Screen Display (OSD) feature. It leads you step by step through the setup process without the need to study the manual. Following setup, on-screen menus enable you to set up password-protected user accounts. And because different user accounts may have different preferences, you can now personalize preferences for each user. Users (other than the administrator) cant make changes to the system but can access the Web interface and log into the VNC console. You can also set user accounts to time out after theyve gone unused for a specified amount of time.

Additionally, the switch features an internal firewall that, when enabled, causes the ServSwitch EC to only accept logins from listed hosts.

When a new firmware version is released, its easy to upgrade the flash memory. Check your firmware version and update via easy on-screen menus.

The ServSwitch EC with Built-In IP for PS/2 and USB Servers and PS/2 Consoles integrates easily into your SNMP-managed network. Just use the SNMP menu to configure the switch to be recognized and managed using industry-standard SNMP software.

You can connect an equal-size or smaller-size ServSwitch EC slave unit to a master unit ServSwitch EC with IP. Thus, a 16-port master switch can connect to both 16- and 8-port slave units, and 8-port master units can connect to 8- and 4-port slave units. Once connected, all units automatically configure themselves as master or slaves. The 16-port unit can support up to 136 servers when you cascade 8 16-port slave units.

All three models now feature flexible color depth. Choose between 8, 12, or 16 bits. Whats more, you can also take screen snapshots of varying sizes.

The 4-port switch is housed in a compact desktop chassis. The 8- and 16-port models are rackmountable in only 1U of rack space. Rackmounting hardware is included.
