Cannot login to configure Belkin SMB KVM-over-IP swith
I have a Belkin OmniView SMB KVM-over-IP Switch model F1DP108G.
I have tried using Windows XP SP3, Vista Business x86, Window Small Business Server 2003, Windows Small Business Server 2008, and Windows Server 2008. I am not able to access the web configuration tool, using the https://"ipaddress"/config. I have a DHCP server and I know the correct IP address. I get to the screen to enter my username and password. I type in the default, admin/SMBremote. The page refreshes and I am returned to the same login screen.

It sounds like there is an issue of synchronization between the monitor and KVM. This will force the monitor into a lower resolution to sync them. You may want to check with Belkin to see if there is a firmware update for the KVM. There may also be a driver issue with one(all) of the video cards on the system. I recommend updating the drivers on all affected machines with the monitor connected directly to the individual machines. Rather than using generic drivers, I would use the drivers downloaded from the manufacturer of video cards and from Viewsonic for the monitor.
This happens on KVMs, some more than others. I have a couple of Avocents that work great with Dell and HP servers, a Belkin OmniView that works great with two Dells and OK with a home built. Bottom line is some switches work better than others just like some PCs seem to behave better than others.
If you?re looking for suggestions I would stay away from the cheaper $50 and under switches unless you find a good, used, guaranteed one somewhere. I like the Belkin OmniView and Advocent (really expensive, meant for servers and other medium sized sites). I would stay away from LinkSys, they make good wireless equipment but haven?t heard much good about their KVM switches.
The original post was a few months ago so this is really intended to help anyone in the future who is researching a similar problem and winds up here.
Is the LED for position 1 and 2 always on? If the switch doesn't detect power on the PS2 keyboard connector it won't let you switch to to that position.
If you are using a USB mouse with an adaptor or a wireless mouse try a conventional PS2. I have a MS wireless mouse one of my switches does not like and have to resort to that sometimes.
Another issue could be excessive cable length or PS2 extension cables.
