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.

When you go to the Connect to Server dialog, you may browse the names of computers that are on your local subnet.
can connect to a server via its IP address or DNS name. If it is
required or more convenient in your environment, you may also use other
valid URL formats, such as: smb://ServerName/ShareName smb://DOMAIN;User@ServerName/ShareName
The name of the "share" (the shared disk, volume, or directory) must be specified. You will not be prompted for it.
You cannot type spaces as part of the share name when connecting. In place of any space in the share name, type: %20 .
troubleshooting a connection issue, you can ping the IP address of the
Windows PC using the Mac OS X Network Utility application (in the
Utilities folder). A successful ping verifies a TCP/IP connection
between the two computers. This is an important first troubleshooting
step when there's no response or a timeout for a connection attempt,
since SMB connections involving a Mac require TCP/IP. However, a
successful ping does not mean the SMB service is also working or
troubleshooting an SMB connection issue, use Console, which is located
in the Utilities folder. These Console logs may help advanced users
identify an issue: private/var/log/samba, private/var/log/kernel.log,
system.log . Note that some log files only appear when logged into Mac
OS X with an administrator acccount.
If you are connecting
to Windows XP, make sure that the Internet Connection Firewall settings
are not interfering with your connection. SMB uses ports 137, 138,
139, and 445. These ports should be open on the Windows XP computer.
This may require "Advanced" configuration of the XP firewall.
you are connecting to a Windows SMB resource, check to see if the
firewall is blocking TCP ports 137, 138, 139 and 445. After trying the
above steps, you may perform advanced troubleshooting by inspecting log
entries in the Event Log of the Windows SMB resource (if you have access
to it), and/or the Mac OS X computer's relevant logs in the Console
application. If those steps do not help identify the issue, or you do
not want to perform advanced troubleshooting, than you should contact
your network administrator. It may be necessary to contact your network
administrator in some situations in order to grant access to your Mac
from the SMB resource, or its host network configuration.
Mac OS X uses SMB only over the TCP/IP protocol, not the NetBEUI protocol.
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.
