NexxTech mini KVM switch - hotkey required to switch

I have been given a NexxTech mini KVM switch - serial, not USB. I'm trying to figure out the hotkeys to switch between the two computers. I have searched online for an instruction manual, but I haven't been able to find anything as of yet. If you have any ideas, please let me know. Thank you.

Hit scroll lock twice quickly (within 2 seconds) then either "1" or "2" to select the input you want. I needed to remember how to do this myself today since I haven't used this KVM in years, having replaced it with a 4-port ages ago.

Just bought a 4 port KVM and hooked it up and the USB mouse and keyboard arn't recognized by either of the two computers that were hooked up. The HOTKEYs are recognized by the KVM. The lights on keyboard...


is that a Mouse/keyboard combo ? If so, try with a standalone Mouse and a keyboard. If the Keyboard and Mouse need Special Drivers the solution might not work neither.

I hope that helped.

Cannot invoke hotkey function to switch computers .Directions say use num loc key plus minus key and release num loc but this doesnt work.


Make sure your keyboard and mouse are plugged into the correct usb slots on the switch. One is labled for keyboard, and the other for mouse. If you mix these up, those hotkeys will not work! :) Also, a much better hotkey for this switch is to tap scroll-lock twice. This automatically switches, so you don't have to hit multiple buttons.

Can't switch


Make sure your keyboard and mouse are plugged into the correct usb slots on the switch. One is labled for keyboard, and the other for mouse. If you mix these up, those hotkeys will not work! :) Also, try tapping scroll-lock twice to switch. It's much better than trying to use the num-lock + and - keys, since it's only a two-way KVM. Tapping Num-lock twice automatically switches, so you don't have to hit multiple buttons.

Not working


Make sure your keyboard and mouse are plugged into the right USB ports on the switch. If you plug the keyboard into the mouse USB port the hotkeys will not work! The USB ports on the KVM switch are labeled under each port, with a mouse and keyboard icon respectively.From the Quick Start Guide/Manual: The Numlock hotkeys are listed as:
[Num Lock]+[-] [1] Switches to output 1
[Num Lock]+[-] [2] Switches to output 2
[Numlock]+[-] [A] Auto-scans and chooses which ever port is connected.
Alternatively: Tap [Scroll Lock] twice to automatically switch between ports.
Note: I've never been able to get the Numlock key combinations to work correctly. I always just use double-tap [Scroll Lock] trick to switch.
If you get stuck with your scroll-lock and Alpha lock lights flashing, just hit [Esc] to fix it.

Only 1 light on leads work and only 1 coputer will work


That is the way it is designed, only the light of the PC you are controlling will be lit. Once you switch using the hotkeys, the light switches as well.
