Question about Dakota Scout KVM Switch

Dakota Scout kvm

I have a Dakota Scout 4 port kvm switch, model 1016-04. It must be 7-8 years old. I am wondering if there are some hot key sequences that I can use to switch between connected PC's, rather than use the select button on the front of the unit? Any help or advice would be appreciated. Thanks

Re: Dakota Scout kvm

Try CTRL CTRL A and enter or CTRL CTRL B and enter. THE CTRL CTRL activates the keyboard command sequence and A or B is the required port. Hope that helps.

Re: Dakota Scout kvm


So you still have the same problem???

Twice CTRL - LED flashes (A)
Hit A,B,C or D (Port select)
Hit Enter

RESET: Disconnect ALL cables from "Dakota", Shut all PC's down, reconnect all cables & Fire them all up again ;)

Kind Regards,

I am looking for the hotkey combination for our HP 336044-b21 KVM switch from a iogear KVM?

IOGEAR KVM switches uses Scroll Lock for the hot key. The models of IOGEAR KVM switches starts the letters "GCS". I don't think that your HP 336044-b21 came from IOGEAR.

Anyway, if that's an IOGEAR KVM switch, you may quickly press Scroll Lock twice + Enter (for two port KVM).

Scroll Lock twice + port # + Enter (for 4 port, or 8 port KVM).

NOTE: You need to verify the brand of your KVM switch by referring to the user manual of it.

Thank you and good luck!

I just bought a 2-port kvm switch model no. F1DJ102P (P81551). Can you please tell me the keyboard "hot key" to switch from 1 computer to the other without pressing the button on the KVM unit itself?...

You can conveniently change ports on the Switch through a keyboard command
sequence using the “SCROLL LOCK” key and up and down arrow keys. To send
commands to the Switch, press the “SCROLL LOCK” key twice within two seconds.
You will hear a beep for confirmation. Then you can press the up or down arrow
keys to switch between ports.
