Question: Hi, can I this AP5201 work with a DELL PowerEdge R330 server?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,

KVM switches are designed to be server / computer agnostic - KVM compatibility with a specific server has more to do with the connections available, and desired features. As long as your DELL PowerEdge R330 supports VGA video and USB or PS/2 keyboard & mouse the APC AP5201 should be fully compatible.
