Question about Compaq 242695-001 8-port KVM Switch
May someone help me update the firmware or at least find out if I have the lastest version installed. I have version 1.6.11 installed. Thank you with your assistance with this matter.
HP Parts supposedly still stocks the EPROM for this model, so you can try to order it from the HP Parts Store. Check for part 340579-001.

Unfortunately, upgrading the firmware on this KVM switch is quite a challenge. The Compaq 4110 KVM switch was actually manufactured by Apex which is now part of Avocent. Your switch is Compaq's rebranding of the Apex/Outlook EL-80DT from Avocent.
The upgrade of the firmware requires to physically replace the actual EPROM chip inside the unit! You may look at pages 64 and 65 of the user manual:
Being more than 8 years old, this unit has been discontinued for a long time and Avocent is not providing anymore support. I wish you good luck for finding an upgrade... maybe you will be able to find a replacement EPROM via Google or on eBay.

You should be able to go to Compaq, support and look up your KVM and Model and they should have firmware there.
