Overview

Tripp Lite’s B072-008-1-IP KVM Switch is the optimal solution for controlling up to 8 computers/servers locally, from across the room, down the street or around the globe on a network or the Internet.

This KVM switch can be accessed and controlled remotely, so there’s no need to travel to the server room or network closet. A Java-based application allows access via web browser from any secure IP connection; a non-browser client that can bypass browser-related Java Security prompts is available.

The B072-008-1-IP uses inexpensive, user-supplied Cat5e/6/6a cabling with Server Interface Units (sold separately) so you can connect computers/servers located up to 100 ft. away from the switch. This switch features dual Ethernet ports; if one fails, the other takes over, keeping remote access uninterrupted. Users can switch easily between the 8 ports using an on-screen display (OSD), hotkey commands or a remote toolbar. Multi-level password protection prohibits unauthorized users from accessing connected computers, and a local user and a remote user can each log on and access different ports simultaneously.

Two serial ports allow control of serial-manageable devices such as IP PDUs, firewalls and routers; individual ports can be assigned to an IP PDU port to power on/off the server connected to that port. This KVM switch is compatible with both Windows and Linux operating systems, and provides remote access using a Windows computer. It supports VGA video resolutions up to 1920 x 1080 @ 60 Hz. Heavy-duty steel housing stands up to frequent use.

Virtual Media allows an .iso file to be mounted to a target server and accessed as if it were stored directly on it. Virtual Media data transfer rates up to 12Mbps are supported when using a B078-101-USB2 Server Interface Unit. Other features include RADIUS and LDAP/S authentication, system-sent SNMP messaging and an event log that tracks logins, reboots and network setting changes.

Free NetCommander-AXS Management Software is available to access and control all of your Tripp Lite NetCommander IP KVM switches (B070 and B072 series). From a single interface, you can access server ports on any of your KVM switches, power cycle or power on/off outlets of IP PDUs, and manage KVM settings. This software can be downloaded free of charge from the model support page for the B072-008-1-IP.

Features

Saves Space and Money
  • Mounts in a standard 19 in. rack
  • Inexpensive Cat5e/6/6a cabling lets you locate servers up to 100 ft. from the switch
  • Use a Server Interface Unit, B078-101-USB-1 (for USB) or B078-101-PS2 (for PS/2) with each server to be connected with Cat5 cable; use a B078-101-USB2 to support Virtual Media data transfer rates up to 12Mbps
  • To convert DisplayPort or HDMI computers to VGA, use Tripp Lite adapters P134-06N-VGA-V2 or P131-06N. Maximum video resolutions using adapters may vary.
IP Remote Access for Fewer Trips to the Server Room
  • Control this KVM switch over IP: remote access means there’s no need to travel to the server room or network closet
  • Java-based application allows Windows computers to control a target server via web browser from any location over a secured IP connection
