Answer: Thanks for reaching out to us,
The DKX4-101 does in-fact have an internal fan for cooling the unit.
Please let us know if there is anything else we can help you with!
Question: Can I replace the internal fan with a more quiet version?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,
While this is not officially supported, we had a customer with the same issue that was able swap out fans for a quieter version - see below. Please note however, modifying the unit will most likely void the warranty, and could be a fire hazard, so we don't really recommend it; You may want to wait for updated firmware instead.
"In order deal with the loud fan, I purchased a 92mm 5v, .38a fan. Despite having the same power requirements as the internal fan, I couldn't get it to run. Then I remembered the USB port on the front of the unit and purchased a USB to 2-pin head adapter.
That works. I've since replaced that fan with a Noctua NF-A9.
I removed the top cover of the KVM unit and mounted the fan blowing down on the heatsink and motherboard. The unit is now installed under the adjacent desk in my office. I can only hear it if all the other computers in the room are turned off.
If Raritan can update their firmware to throttle the fan speed, this won't be necessary. In the meantime, if you have buyers like me that want the high-resolution, but can't stand the noise, this information might be helpful."
Please let us know if there is anything else we can ever help you with!
Question: Does the Raritan DKX4-101 support VNC access?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,
The Raritan DKX4-101 can be accessed by a VNC client like Real VNC with the optional Raritan Command Center manager.
As a stand-alone IP KVM, the DKX4-101 can be controlled by three native KVM Client alternatives: Java-free HKC (HTML KVM Client), Microsoft Windows .NET AKC (Active KVM Client), and Java-based VKC (Virtual KVM Client).
The optional Raritan CommandCenter provides additional support of in-band access solutions such as RDP, VNC, SSH and service processors from leading computer manufacturers, as well as Remote Power Control, and access to VMware Virtual Machines.
