Unable to switch between computers

We installed a new server using Windows server operating system and the second computer uses XP. Before installing this new server everything worked as it should with the KVM switch. Since installing the new server I could not make the old switch work and now went a bought a new switch and it still does not work. Could it be a setting on the new computer?

The KVM is unresponsive, meaning the buttons are no longer operating the way they should to go from one server to the otehr no reaction.

try tapping scroll lock twice then arrow keys. sometimes you need to start the server/computer with the kvm plugged in to get the computer to "recogize" the KVM is there. otherwise it looks for other devices Always start the computer with KVM on the respective channel. Then use it to switch. Cheers.

Need drivers for xp and vista

Most KVM switches does not have a driver. Because these devices are simply Plug-n-Play and does not require any driver installation.

What you need to do is to check the system requirements for every KVM switches before purchasing it.

Here's the fact:
- PS/2 KVM switches are designed for PS/2 computers keyboard and mouse

- USB KVM switches are designed to work with USB. Meaning, if you're going to use an adapter (PS/2 to USB), there's a big chance that your KVM might not work correctly.

- Most KVM switches does not work properly with docking stations.

- KVM switches are tested to work with wired keyboards and mice.

- You have to make sure that everything is properly connected to the computers if you want your KVM switch function properly.

- Lastly, update the USB driver of your computers (XP and Vista).

- Most KVMs has a firmware upgrade that you may find in manufacturer's Web site.

Cannot login to configure Belkin SMB KVM-over-IP swith

This happened to me until I installed the activeX control. Were you prompted for that, and did it install successfully?

After the activeX installed, did it also prompt you to install the secure certificate to access the site without IE prompting about invalid certificates?

Since you've tried multiple machines, I doubt security settings on IE are causing the problem. But my switch did these two actions before I was able to login successfully.

The switching software that you installed on your computer when you installed the KVM includes an optional setting called "scan" that can be set to automatically page between the two displays.

This is most often used when the device is used for network or server status monitoring. If you configured that to switch every one second I can see how that would be very annoying.

Check the configuration of the switching software to verify that the scan setting is turned off.
