INSTALLATIONRackmounting To install the Rackmount KVM Switch in a standard 19” rack unit, simply screw the two mounting brackets to the sides of the switch (screws and brackets included). NOTE: Two sets of pre-drilled holes let you connect the brackets so either the front panel or the rear panel of the switch is facing out. Then attach the two brackets to the rack.
Rear Panel Connections Before making any power or network connections to the Rackmount KVM Switch, make sure that all devices in the configuration are turned off and properly grounded.
1. Connect the USB or PS/2 keyboard and mouse and the monitor of your command (console) computer to the corresponding plugs in the console section of the switch’s rear panel (highlighted at right).
2. Plug the HD15 connector on one of the included 4-in-1 connection cables into any of the PC ports to the right of the console section on the rear panel of the switch, then plug the keyboard/mouse and monitor connectors on the other end of the connection cable into a computer to be included in the configuration. Repeat this step for as many computers as you 8-port rear panel desire and the switch allows (8 or 16 total). NOTE: The shape of these HD15 connectors has been modified so that only KVM cables designed to work specifically with this series of switches can be properly plugged in. Do not try to use ordinary 15-pin VGA connector cables in your configuration.
3. Plug the included power adapter into the DC9V jack, then connect it to an AC power outlet and turn on the computers.
Front Panel Controls and Indicators The port LEDs (1-3 are shown at right for reference) indicate the status of the ports as determined by using either the corresponding buttons on the switch — below the LEDs — or the On-Screen Display (OSD).
• The On Line LEDs light red to indicate that the computer connected to the corresponding port is powered on.
• The Selected LEDs light green to indicate that the computer connected to the corresponding port is the one currently selected and controlled by the console.
• The Port Selection buttons can be pressed to select and control the computer connected to the corresponding port.
• The recessed Reset button can be pressed (using a pin or similar pointed object) to reset the switch if it isn’t responding.
OPERATIONHot Plugging The Rackmount KVM Switch supports hot Plug and Play: Computers can be removed from the configuration and added back into it simply by disconnecting then re-connecting their cables from their PC ports — without the need to turn off the switch. The computer, however, must be re-connected to the same port as before for this feature to work properly. NOTE: The console section doesn’t support hot-plugging of a PS/2 keyboard or mouse.
ENGLISHPowering Off and Restarting
If the switch needs to be turned off, follow these steps before turning it back on:
1. Turn off all computers attached to the switch.
2. If the switch is operating under external power, disconnect the power adapter from the switch.
3. Wait 10 seconds, then re-connect the power adapter and turn on the computers.
On-Screen Display (OSD) In addition to selecting a networked computer by pressing its corresponding Port Selection button on the front panel of the switch, all computer control and switching procedures can be performed using the On-Screen Display (OSD).
• To display the main menu, press CTRL on the keyboard twice.
• If the OSD menu is set as “Console locked,” you need to input a password each time the main menu appears. If no password has been set, just press Enter to display the main menu. There are two passwords in the OSD: the user password, which is not pre-set; and the factory password, which is “INTELLINET.”
• The OSD always starts at the List screen, with the highlight bar in the same position as when the OSD was exited.
• To exit the OSD, press Esc.
• To move up and down through the menu one line at a time, use the Up and Down Arrow keys. If there are more listed entries than what can appear on the main screen, the screen will scroll.
• To activate a port, move the highlight bar to it and press Enter.
• After you select a port, the OSD menu automatically disappears and the port currently selected is indicated.

• To use PN method, highlight “PN,” press Enter, input the port number, then press Enter to switch. If the port number is invalid, it will prompt you to try again.
• To return to the main menu, press Esc.
F2 SCAN — This allows you to automatically scan from the current selected port through any active and connected computers. While scanning, a small window on the screen indicates the current port number. To stop scanning (and continue viewing the last computer scanned), press the space bar. The scan interval can be set by the user.
F3 LIST — This lets you broaden or narrow the range of ports displayed on the main screen. Many of the OSD functions described below only operate on the computers listed on the main screen (selected by using this function).

• QVIEW lists only the ports that have been selected as Quick View ports.
• POWERED ON lists only the ports that have their attached computers powered on.

• SCAN DURATION offers eight options for the amount of time each connected computer is scanned, ranging from 3 to 60 seconds.
• SET PASSWORD lets you change the current password as directed on screen.
