How to set up Compaq Series 4110 8-port KVM Switch & select computer

I acquired a Compaq KVM switch, but have no idea how to operate it. There is no obvious way to select the desired computer to control. How is that done?

    That seems to be just what I need. Thank you.

    A side question. Whenever I tried to get to the link with FireFox running under linux it hung up, but with FireFox running on Windows XP I was able to connect and download the manual. Why would that be?

    Thanks again.

    Richard

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 key to display the KVM switch menu should be PrintScreen. Here is a link to the user manual:

Your answer seems to be on page 34.

    This is a good question, but unfortunately I don't have an answer for you. You may ask this question in another post on FixYa. Maybe a Firefox expert would be able to help.

When you click on the scroll lock twice you will switch between the computers.
Did you manage to get a manual on CD when you procured this one ? I am interested in the CD which allows you to program each computer to show a different name..

If possible directly connect the KVM cables to the laptop computer. Try to avoid connecting the KVM cables to a docking station. Also if your KVM has manual port selection buttons on the front of the KVM try holding that button for about five seconds when switching ports.

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.

APEX switches are manufacturer by Avocent and rebranded by Dell, HP/Compaq, IBM, etc.
