Raritan Dominion KX II-101 V2 Non-blocked Single Port IP KVM
KX2-101-V2 Manual (PDF)
The Raritan Dominion KX II-101 V2 is a next-generation KVM-over-IP device that eliminates the blocking factor inherent in switched KVM architectures to provide anytime, anywhere access and BIOS-level control of a single server, via a dedicated IP address. The DKX2-101-V2 provides the secure access and control of a full-featured KVM-over-IP switch in an inexpensive, portable, nonblocking, palm-size package.
The Dominion KX II-101 V2 is a small but complete package of KVM-over-IP innovations. It works with the industry's widest range of browsers and operating systems, so you can use almost any combination of OS and browser. It also incorporates Raritan's Virtual KVM Desktop™ features to provide a user experience that is indistinguishable from an at-the-rack connection. The KX II-101 V2 is incredibly scalable. And because it is CommandCenter® -certified, a large number of Dominion KX II-101 V2 units can be integrated through Raritan's CommandCenter Secure Gateway into a single logical network, with a single sign-on from a single IP address.

Answer: Unfortunately, as is, it will not. support DVI. However, an adapter can be used to connect your DVI card to a VGA slot assuming that you have DVI-I as your source. http://www.kvm-switches-online.com/ada-dvi-2-vga.html
We also have an IP KVM switch (8 port minimum) that will support your DVI - http://www.kvm-switches-online.com/u-ip802.html. Please let us know if you have any questions.
Question: Does the KVM cable come with the KVM module?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry.
Yes, the DKX2-101-V2 comes complete with AC/DC adapter, KVM cable and rack mounting hardware.
Question: i would like to use this with 5 concurrent ip users about 8 hrs per day everyday. will this work for that application?
Answer: Yes, 5 users would be able to view the same PC at a time, but only 1 at a time would be able to actually control the PC. You are able to setup the users/time delay between access control in the menu. Please call us if you have questions at 1-877-586-6654.

Question: Hello, I'm interested about this device - I'd like to get more information about it, especially having it as help of administrative jobs when one pc is situated a long and difficult way ahead - for example the bios level commands must be allowed. So if I understood the picture right, I can put a pc/server connected to this device and control it via ip-address like I'd be sitting beside the pc/server
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. Yes, that is the functionality of this IP KVM. It is ideal for remote offices or remote locations where a PC or server is located away from the administrators. The secure connection to the PC is created through a standard web browser. Because control passes over the network, the user experience will be close to sitting beside the PC/server, but won't be quite the same. Outside factors may impact the experience as well, such as network congestion.
For your convenience, we have added a link to the manual for this product on the products webpage.
Question: Do you sell replacement power supplies?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. Please contact your KVM Switches Online representative toll free at 1-877-586-6654 for power supply availability.
Question: My inquiry is the ability to reset or cold boot an unresponsive server from a power button in the KVM screen. Is that possible?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. Reboot functionality typically requires an associated PDU or power strip that can be also be remotely controlled. If you have the proper equipment (the KX II-101-V2, a Raritan power strip and optional DKX2-101-V2-PDU connector), setup the correct configuration, and have the appropriate user permissions, this unit will provide cold reboot functionality.
Question: I want to control a laptop running Windows 7 remotely. Does this require to install any software in my laptop to gain access? I won't be able to install any software since I don't have admin access. Please reply.
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. The KX II-101-V2 KVM-over-IP gateway does not require any software to be installed on the target computer.
Question: What is the local admin port pin-out. Do you also have the serial cable that comes with the original DKX-101?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. The pin-out for the admin port should be as follows (from page 192 of the manual):
1 DTR (out)
2 TXD (out)
3 RXD (in)
4 DCD/DSR (in) *
6 DTR (out)
7 CTS (in)
8 RTS (out)
9 RI (in)
The part number for the original cable is the CRJ2DB20 (an RJ11 cable) used with the A9F-RJ11 – Serial port adapter. Unfortunately that part is no longer available, but a standard RJ11 for serial communication cable may work.
Question: Do you need a client-side KVM module in addition to the server-side KVM?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. For client side access, this unit requires a Windows®, Linux®, or Apple Macintosh® computer attached to the internet or network. When you log into a KVM target server using the KX II-101-V2 Remote Console, a browser based Virtual KVM Client window opens on the remote PC, so no separate KVM module is required on the client side.
Question: Hello im interested in DKX2-101-V2. From the pictures and description it seems like it supports PS2 only? My machines supports USB keyboard/mouse. Thank you!
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. The KK II-101-V2 will support both USB and PS/2 connections. For a USB server, only one connection is necessary for the mouse, keyboard and virtual media support.
Question: Can I power this device from a PoE Switch? If not, is there a PoE adapter?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. Unfortunately, the V2 version of this device does not support PoE and Raritan does not have an adapter. However, according to the manufacturer, a third party PoE adapter device should work.
