IOGEAR GCS1808I overview

  • 1Description

The 8-port GCS1808I IP Based KVM Switch from IOGEAR allows local operators to monitor and access multiple computers. Via the web browser, it also allows remote users to access the switch. GCS1808I supports up to 64 user accounts and allows 32 concurrent user logins for a single-bus computer access. The Message Board, a built-in feature that resembles an Internet chat program, lets users communicate with each other. The ability to exchange information in real-time allows users to manage the KVM switch and connected computers in a smooth and efficient manner.

The GCS1808I features many security tools such as 128-bit SSL encryption for browser access and RC4 128-bit encryption for secure data transmission. It also supports third-party authentication such as RADIUS, LDAP, LDAPS, and MS Active Directory. In addition, IP and Mac filters provide added security against unauthorized access. The Log Server, a Windows-based administrative utility, records all the events that take place on the GCS1808I and writes them to a searchable database. Once logged in to the KVM, users can manage the computers via the virtual remote desktop window. Mouse DynaSync optimizes the remote and local cursors synchronization.
