1. Important Safety Instructions
1.1 General Safety Instructions
 Read all of these instructions and save them for future reference.  Follow all warnings and instructions marked on the device.  Do not place the device on any unstable surface. If the device falls, serious damage will
result.  Do not use the device near water.  Do not place the device near or over, radiators or heat registers.  The device cabinet is provided with slots and openings to allow for adequate ventilation. To
ensure reliable operation and protect against overheating, these openings should never be blocked or covered.  The device should never be placed on a soft surface such as a bed, sofa of rug. Doing so will block the device's ventilation openings. Moreover, the device should not be placed in a built-in enclosure unless adequate ventilation has been provided.  Never spill liquid of any type on the device.  Unplug the device from the wall outlet before cleaning. Use a damp cloth for cleaning. Do not use liquid or aerosol cleaners.  The device should be operated from the power source indicated on the marking label. If uncertain of the power available, consult your dealer or local power company.  The device is designed for IT power distribution systems up to 230V phase-to-phase voltage.  As an added safety feature, the device is equipped with a 3-wire grounding type plug. If unable to insert the plug into the outlet, contact an electrician to replace the obsolete outlet. Do not attempt to plug into a two-prong ungrounded outlet. Always follow local/national wiring codes.  Do not allow anything to rest on the power cord or cables. Route the power cord and cables to avoid them being stepped on or tripped over.  If an extension cord is used with this device, ensure the total ampere ratings of all products used on the extension cord do not exceed its rated ampere rating. Also ensure all products plugged into the wall outlet does not exceed a total of 15 amperes.  Consideration should be given to the connection of equipment and the supply circuit, as well as what effect overloading the supply circuit might have on overcurrent protection and supply wiring.  To help protect the system from unexpected transient increases and decreases in electrical power, use a Tripp Lite Surge Protector, Line Conditioner, or Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS).  Position system cables and power cables carefully so nothing rests on any cables.  When connecting or disconnecting power to hot pluggable power supplies, observe the following guidelines:  Install the power supply before connecting the power cable to the power supply.  Unplug the power cable before removing the power supply.  If the system has multiple sources of power, disconnect power from the system by
unplugging all power cables from the power supplies.  Never push objects of any kind into or through cabinet slots. They may touch dangerous
voltage points or short out parts resulting in a risk of fire or electrical shock.  Do not attempt to service the device; refer all servicing to qualified service personnel.

1. Important Safety Instructions
 If the following conditions occur, unplug the device from the wall outlet and bring it to qualified service personnel for repair:  The power cord or plug has become damaged or frayed.  Liquid has been spilled into the device.  The device has been exposed to rain or water.  The device has been dropped, or the cabinet has been damaged.  The device exhibits a distinct change in performance, indicating a need for service.  The device does not operate normally when the operating instructions are followed.
 Only adjust controls covered in the operating instructions. Improper adjustment of other controls may result in damage that will require extensive work by a qualified technician to repair.
 Use of this equipment in life support applications where failure of this equipment can reasonably be expected to cause the failure of the life support equipment or to significantly affect its safety or effectiveness is not recommended. Do not use this equipment in the presence of a flammable anesthetic mixture with air, oxygen or nitrous oxide.
1.2 Rack-Mounting Safety Instructions
 The ambient operating temperature in the rack may be an issue and is dependent upon the rack load and ventilation. When installing in a closed or multi-device rack assembly, ensure the temperature will not exceed the maximum rated ambient temperature.
 Before installing the rack, ensure the stabilizers are secured to the rack, extended to the floor and the full weight of the rack rests on the floor. Install front and side stabilizers on a single rack or front stabilizers for joined multiple racks before working on the rack.
 Always load the rack from the bottom up with the heaviest item loaded into the rack first.  When loading the rack, avoid creating a hazardous condition due to uneven loading.  Ensure the rack is level and stable before extending a device from the rack.  Use caution when pressing the rail release latches or sliding a device into or out of a rack;
slide rails can pinch your fingers.  After a device is inserted into the rack, carefully extend the rail into a locking position, then
slide the device into the rack.  Do not overload the AC supply branch circuit that provides power to the rack. The total rack
load should not exceed 80 percent of the branch circuit rating.  Ensure that proper airflow is provided to devices in the rack.  Do not step on or stand on any device when servicing other devices in a rack.  Do not connect the RJ11 connector marked "Upgrade" to a public telecommunication network.  Caution! Slide/Rail (LCD KVM) mounted equipment is not to be used as a shelf or work

2. Installation
The B030-008-17-IP is designed for mounting in a 1U rack system. For convenience, a rackmounting kit is included for quick installation. The various mounting options are explained in the following subsections.
2.1 Standard Rack Mounting
The standard rack-mounting brackets that come attached to the console KVM switch allow the device to be installed in a standard 1U rack by a single individual. 1. Slide out the rear mounting brackets from the console and mount both brackets (separate
from the console) to the inside rear of a standard 1U rack system using user-supplied screws. 2. Gently slide the console into the two rear-mounted brackets in the rack and secure the console in place with user-supplied screws.
2.2 2-Post Rack Mounting
The console KVM switch can also be mounted in a 2-post rack installation using the optional 2-Post Rack Mount Kit (model #: B019-000). The mounting hardware allows for the console to be opened with the drawer in any position. Heavy-duty 14-gauge steel provides stability and prevents the console frame from twisting. See the B019-000 instructional manual for detailed mounting instructions.
2.3 Grounding
To prevent damage to the installation, it is important that all devices are properly grounded. Use the included green-yellow ground wire (min. 0.5 mm2, min. 20 AWG) to ground the KVM switch by connecting one end of the wire to the grounding terminal on the device and the other end of the wire to a suitable grounded cabinet.

4. Network Setup
4.1 IP Address Configuration
By default, the KVM will automatically have an IP address assigned via DHCP server. To configure a fixed IP address, you will need to access the KVM switch in one of three ways: Local Console, IP Installer or Browser.
4.1.1 Local Console
Note: The local console OSD only allows IPv4 network settings configuration. For IPv6, access the Web Management Interface. 1. When accessing the console KVM switch for the first time, a prompt will appear asking
for a Username and Password. The default Username is administrator, and the default Password is password. For security purposes, changing the username and password is strongly recommended. Once the default username and password are entered, the OSD Main page will appear. 2. Press the [F4] key to open the OSD ADM page. 3. In the OSD ADM page, highlight SET IP ADDRESS and press [Enter]. The following screen appears.
4. By default, the Obtain an IP address automatically (DHCP) option is selected. To manually assign an IP address, check the radio button next to the Use the following IP address option.
5. You can then navigate to the IP Address, Subnet Mask and Default Gateway fields by entering the settings suitable for your network. Upon changing the KVM's IP Address settings, the Reset on Exit function of the F4: ADM menu will be automatically activated. Upon logging out, the new settings will be saved for use going forward. If you go into the F4: ADM menu and clear the Reset on Exit check mark before logging out, the changed settings will be ignored and the original IP Address settings will remain in effect. Note: Although the changed IP settings are ignored, they still remain in the network settings fields. The next time a page is opened, the Reset on Exit box will automatically be enabled. When the switch resets, the new IP settings will become the ones used by the switch. To avoid this problem, go back to the network settings page and ensure the desired IP settings appear in the fields.

4. Network Setup
4.1.2 IP Installer
Computers running Windows can use the IP Installer utility found in the included CD-ROM to assign an IP address to the KVM. Notes:
 The IP Installer Settings section located in the KVM's Web Management Interface network page must be enabled in order to use the IP Installer to assign an IP address. This setting is enabled by default.
 The local console OSD only configures IPv4 network settings. For IPv6, access the Web Management Interface.
1. Save the IP Installer.exe file from the CD to a desired location on a computer that is on the same network as the KVM switch.
2. Locate the recently saved IP Installer.exe file and double-click on its icon. A screen similar to the one below will appear.
3. The IP Installer searches the network and displays all B030-008-19-IP KVM switches found in the device list. If your device does not appear in the list, click the Enumerate button to refresh the device list. If more than one of the same KVM switch models appears in the list, locate the desired device using the MAC address found on the bottom of the console KVM. Once your device is located in the list, highlight it.
4. From here you can choose between the following two options: 1. Obtain an IP address automatically (DHCP), or 2. Specify an IP address. If you choose to assign your own address, fill in the IP Address, Subnet Mask, and Gateway fields with information appropriate to your network. Click on the Set IP button to apply the new network settings to the selected KVM switch.
5. After the new IP address shows up in the device list, click the Exit button to exit the IP Installer.

4. Network Setup
4.1.3 Browser
By default, the KVM switch will have an IP Address automatically assigned via DHCP server. If the KVM Switch is on a network that does not have a DHCP server to automatically assign an IP address, it boots with a default IP address. The default IPv4 and IPv6 addresses can be found on the sticker located on the bottom of the KVM. 1. For a computer/server on the same network as your console KVM switch, set the computer/
server's IP address to 192.168.0.XXX, where XXX represents any number or numbers except the KVM's default address. 2. Using this computer/server, access the KVM switch via the default address. A screen will appear asking to provide a username and password. Note: If first prompted by a screen stating the website's security certificate cannot be trusted, click on the link to proceed anyway; the certificate can be trusted.
3. If accessing the KVM for the first time, enter the username administrator and the password password. For security purposes, changing the username and password is strongly recommended. Once the default username and password are entered, the web management interface will appear with the following page displayed:

4. Network Setup
4. Click on the Device Management icon at the top of the page, then click on the Network tab. The Network page will appear.
5. The KVM switch supports both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses. The Network page can set the IP address manually or be automatically assigned via DHCP server. By default, the IP address is set to be automatically assigned via DHCP server. To manually assign an IP address, check the Set IP address manually check box in the IPv4 Settings or IPv6 Settings sections, depending on your network.
6. When checked, the IP address and DNS server address fields open up. Enter the desired settings in the fields. Once all IP address and DNS server address information is entered, click the Save icon at the bottom of the screen. Upon logging out of the KVM (click the Logout icon in the upper-right corner of the screen), the KVM will reset itself and the IP address settings just entered will be implemented.

5. KVM Operation
5.1 Local Console
5.1.1 Local Console Login
When accessing the console KVM switch for the first time, a prompt will appear asking for a username and password. The default username is administrator, and the default password is password. For security purposes, changing the username and password on this account is strongly recommended. Once the KVM has been set up and user accounts have been created, the login prompt will appear only when a user logs out of the KVM. After logging in for the first time using the default username and password, the OSD Main Screen will appear in Administrator mode with access to all settings and functions.

6. Logging In to the KVM over IP
Three methods can be used to connect to the KVM switch over IP: Web Browser, AP Windows Client and AP Java Client. The web interface appearance will vary slightly, depending on which method is used.
