Question: Does this product support Logitech Unifying receivers
Answer: No KVM on the market states that it will work with wireless applications. Though, we typically suggest going with an Avocent unit when attempting. We do not have a problem with it most of the time, though every application is different.

Question: Can the power supply be plugged into 208V, or must it be 120V?

Question: Where can I connect mouse and keyboard from the servers? can only see RGB ports at the back
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. The RGB port you see on the back is actually a port for a proprietary Avocent SwitchView Combo KVM cable that has a DB-15 connector on the KVM side and PS/2, USB and VGA connections on the server side.
