Does anyone have a pdf of the Protec Bytelan KVM switch. I inherited one after our server room was consolidated with another. But the KVM did not have a power source nor a manual.
It was originally on a number of unix systems, and the SW switches on the back configure the usage of the keyboard / mouse and right now, I've got the power running and video is ok, but the mouse and keyboards are not working.
I assume the SW switches on the back are the issue.
The switches are used when cascading more than a single BYTELAN KVM. It specifies the scan rate, and which KVM unit the keyboard and mouse are connected to. For a single KVM, use the default settings.
SW1 SW2 Scan Rate
ON ON 2 seconds
OFF ON 10 seconds
ON OFF 20 seconds
OFF OFF 40 seconds
SW3 NOT USED
SW4 ON For KVM unit with KB/mouse
OFF For other KVM units w/o KB/mouse,
If your power supply isn't adequate, it may cause your KB/mouse problem. It should be 9VDC with at least 500ma.
Hope this helps.

If other keyboards and mice won't work, it sounds like your KVM bought the farm. Does it have any power lights that come on? is it plugged into a live outlet? Are they PS2 ports or USB? PS2 ports don't like power surges. Is the device plugged into a UPS? Does the UPS have power or is is tripped? In a server room?
Funny... I was reading about something like this for an HP KVM I' looking at buying... I can't find ANY documentation for that older model. But I did find a forum that gave advisement on how to switch the ports from system to system.
Read this and give it a try: "Try print screen, then the port number to which you want to switch, then enter."
I copied and pasted it into a text file for myself in case it's the correct method for the KVM I'm going to buy here soon. :)
Perhaps the models are similar enough that it'll work.
Please let me know because I am quite curious to see if this will work. I would imagine that there is a universal standard somehow.
