"Overview\nTripp Lites B072-008-1-IP KVM Switch is the optimal solution for controlling up to 8 computers\/servers locally, from across the room, down the street or around the globe on a network or the Internet.\n\nThis KVM switch can be accessed and controlled remotely, so theres no need to travel to the server room or network closet. A Java-based application allows access via web browser from any secure IP connection; a non-browser client that can bypass browser-related Java Security prompts is available.\n\nThe B072-008-1-IP uses inexpensive, user-supplied Cat5e\/6\/6a cabling with Server Interface Units (sold separately) so you can connect computers\/servers located up to 100 ft. away from the switch. This switch features dual Ethernet ports; if one fails, the other takes over, keeping remote access uninterrupted. Users can switch easily between the 8 ports using an on-screen display (OSD), hotkey commands or a remote toolbar. Multi-level password protection prohibits unauthorized users from accessing connected computers, and a local user and a remote user can each log on and access different ports simultaneously.\n\nTwo serial ports allow control of serial-manageable devices such as IP PDUs, firewalls and routers; individual ports can be assigned to an IP PDU port to power on\/off the server connected to that port. This KVM switch is compatible with both Windows and Linux operating systems, and provides remote access using a Windows computer. It supports VGA video resolutions up to 1920 x 1080 @ 60 Hz. Heavy-duty steel housing stands up to frequent use.\n\nVirtual Media allows an.iso file to be mounted to a target server and accessed as if it were stored directly on it. Virtual Media data transfer rates up to 12Mbps are supported when using a B078-101-USB2 Server Interface Unit. Other features include RADIUS and LDAP\/S authentication, system-sent SNMP messaging and an event log that tracks logins, reboots and network setting changes.\n\nFree NetCommander-AXS Management Software is available to access and control all of your Tripp Lite NetCommander IP KVM switches (B070 and B072 series). From a single interface, you can access server ports on any of your KVM switches, power cycle or power on\/off outlets of IP PDUs, and manage KVM settings. This software can be downloaded free of charge from the model support page for the B072-008-1-IP."
