The GCS1808iKIT 19" Rack Mount 8-Port IP Based KVM Switch Kit with PS/2 & USB KVM Cables from Iogear allows both local and remote operators to monitor and access multiple computers. Remote users access the switches over the Internet through a web browser using TCP/IP protocol. This switch supports up to 64 user accounts and allows 32 concurrent user logins for 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 unit 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 switch and writes them to a searchable database. Once logged in to GCS1808i, users can manage the computers via a virtual remote desktop window. Mouse DynaSync optimizes the remote and local cursors synchronization.
This kit includes additional PS/2 cables (1 x 6', 2 x 10') and USB KVM cables (1 x 6', 2 x 10') to help produce high quality video output - even after long distance transmission or in the most electronically noisy environments such as server cabinets. The cables guarantee optimum signal integrity for high-grade server needs. The keyboard and mouse cables are made of double-sealed 22-gauge wire and are neatly wrapped with a heavy-duty video cable for simplified connections.
