KillerCreation Networks - Support - Frequently Asked Questions - Whats a KVM Over IP feed?

Whats a KVM Over IP feed?

KVM over IP units are extremely useful pieces of hardware that provide a means of accessing a remote server even if the machine has lost internet connectivity. KVM over IP units provide a VGA, mouse and keyboard output over the Internet Protocol, so instead of manually connecting a monitor, mouse and keyboard to a server, this can all be done using a single ethernet cable connected to a SIP (see images below) and accessed remotely.

When would I need to use a KVM over IP feed?

Hopefully never but mishaps do happen. A good example and common occurrence of when this tech might be required is if a user misconfigured their dedicated servers local firewall settings, rending the dedicated server inaccessible externally, to fix the issue, a KVM over IP feed can be attached to the server in question and the firewall can be turned off thus restoring internet access.

This is a picture of the base unit, we use Dell 2161DS KVM over IP units.

Below is a picture of a SIP connector, these devices connect to a dedicated server providing the link to the Dell 2161DS base units. The SIP dongles connect to the base units via ethernet cables.
