Question: Can you give me a part number for an extender cable 15ft so that I can connect my PC via VGA, keyboard via USB and mouse by USB to the Avocent AV3108 - 8 port KVM
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. To make a basic connection from a target server to the KVM switch using a 15 foot cable, you can use the USBIAC-15 (https://www.kvm-switches-online.com/usbiac-15.html). The single USB cable on the end will carry both Keyboard and Mouse signals to the attached target.

Another option would be to use the MPUIQ-VMCHS (https://www.kvm-switches-online.com/mpuiq-vmchs.html) with a 15 foot CAT5 cable. In addition to the basic functions of the USBIAC-15, the MPUIQ-VMCHS will also provide support for USB peripherals, CAC readers, and virtual media.

Question: Do i need to buy Remote Access Key (RAK-key) module to make 1 remote connection to the Avocent AV3108 - 8 Port switch? And may i use standard Cat5/6/7 UTP patch cables for connection between Avocent AV3108 - 8 Port appliance and Avocent MPUIQ-VMCDV? Thanks!
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,

You do not; Unlike the AV2000 series, the AV3000 series does utilize the Remote Access Key (RAK-key).

As far as the patch cables for connecting to the KVM to the dongle(s) (i.e. MPUIQ-VMCDV), you can use any standard Cat5/6/7 UTP patch cable(s).

Question: I need to connect Macs and PCs to the device concurrently. Will this work with both Macs and PCs? Will I need different interface modules for the differing computers?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,

The Avocent AV3108 would indeed work for Macs - you may need to map certain keys like Command to i.e. the start key - this is very easy to do and is built into the Mac OS System Preferences settings. For accessing the KVM via a Mac computer (MacOS X Tiger 10.4+), you would simply use Firefox as the browser.

Question: Not all the ports on the AV3108 are working and I don't know what is the reason?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,

We are sorry to hear of the troubles you are experiencing. Please feel free to contact Avocent (by Vertiv) Technical Support at support.avocent@vertivco.com or give them a call to walk-through and troubleshoot your environment.

Question: What does the -001 in the part # AV3108 mean?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry

The "-001" (AV3108-001) simply indicates that the AV3108 package contents includes a USA power cable.

Please let us know if there is anything else we can help you with!
