8-port, 1-user Master View Max USB/PS2 IP KVM switch
compatible with Windows, Mac, Linux and Sun
CS1708i KVM switch is an IP based KVM switch that allows either a local or remote operator to monitor and control 8 directly attached servers, or through daisy chaining as many as 128 computers.
The IP console is accessed via a browser and control of the servers is accomplished via either a Java or Windows based client. This arrangement allows you to connect to the unit from anywhere on your LAN, WAN or Internet [with a high speed connection] permitting you to work on your servers to the same degree as being in the server room, up and including BIOS adjustments.
The KVM features a panel array mode where you can selectively monitor up to 8 servers simultaneously in a grid array, simply clicking on one of the images instantly brings that server to focus. Because up to 32* users may be logged on concurrently and the unit is single bus, a message board similar to chat is provided so users may collaborate with troubleshooting.
Security features include two level user name and password protection. Users can be assigned port-by-port access rights. 128 bit SSL encryption for the browser, and RC4 128 bit encryption for secure keyboard, mouse, and video data transmission. The CS1708i also supports authentication and authorization via remote servers, such as RADIUS, LDAP, LDAPS, and MS Active Directory.
