KVM-IP-Client (only with UCON-IP-NEO)

With KVM IP clients, you can access remote servers connected to the matrix switches. The connection is either established using the external UCON-IP-NEO user console or the integrated KVM IP port of the Compact Center.

To establish an IP session, a native client (Windows, GNU/Linux) is installed on a client computer or the JAVA client is activated in the web interface of the devices.

The scope of delivery of both UCON-IP-NEO or CompactCenter already provides one native client, which can be installed or copied as often as necessary. The Java client does not require any software installation on the client computer or the target computer.

After the program has been started and the successful authentication, the desktop of the remote target computer is displayed in a program window on the client computer. Target computers neither require any hard- or software installations nor any special configurations (e.g. mouse settings).

KVM-IP clients provide the following features:

Operation
  • Native or Java client
  • Select computers via GUI or OSD
  • Operate target computer with original cursor and keyboard down to BIOS level
  • Execute comprehensive keyboard macros on target computers (e.g. Ctrl+ Alt+Del)
  • Transfer content of IP client computer's clipboard to target computer
Video
  • Automatic determination of video profiles for best performance and image replication
  • Manual adjustment of video profiles
  • Activation of full-screen mode
  • Automatic adjustment of client window to target resolution
  • Screenshots of active session
Communication
  • Chat with another client
System settings
  • Measure bandwidth of data transmission
  • Configure mouse breaks
  • Enable mouse gestures to operate the IP client

UCON-IP-Web-Interface (only with UCON-IP-NEO)

The web interface is used to configure the UCON-IP-NEO user console and provides the following selected settings:

Configuration

  • Set network parameters
  • Enable session time-out for IP clients
  • Set system date and time, select NTP server
