KVM2USB Connection Diagram

KVM2USB™ is a simple, affordable, portable and pocket sized answer to every network administrator's biggest annoyance: finding and lugging around "crash carts" with a monitor, keyboard and mouse to administer servers and other headless machines.

As a compact external device, KVM2USB is easy to use and to transport. About the size of a box of paperclips, this KVM over USB solution is easily plugged in and requires no additional power so you don't have to locate a spare electrical outlet onsite, or drain valuable power from your UPS systems during emergency shutdown procedures.

KVM2USB is ideal for network administrators and security experts that want to manage red-lan, compartmentalized LANs, DMZs or contaminated equipment without the need to make connections that expose other equipment and networks to a compromised machine.
