Installing the IP Console Switch
You must install the IP Console Viewer prior to using the IP Console Switch. The
IP Console Viewer enables you to view and control a server attached to the console
switch system, configure and maintain the system, and prevent unauthorized access
to the console switch through IP connection. For more information, refer to the
HP IP Console Switch Software Guide included on the Rack Products
NOTE: The analog port does not require the IP Console Viewer software for operation. The
analog port uses the on-screen display (OSD). For more information, refer to Chapter 6.
The IP Console Switch system uses Ethernet networking infrastructures and TCP/IP
protocol to transmit keyboard, video, and mouse information between operators and
connected computers. Although 10Base-T Ethernet can be used, a dedicated,
switched 100Base-T network provides improved performance.
