Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. To allow the greatest flexibility, the Raritan Dominion DLX-116 does not come with any Computer Interface Modules (CIMs) or cables.
There is a bundle version, the DLX-116-MPAC, which comes with sixteen 6.5ft. MCUTP20-USB CIMs (does not support Absolute Mouse Synchronization or Universal Virtual Media). The DLX-116-MPAC can be found here: https://www.kvm-switches-online.com/dlx-116-mpac.html
Question: Will the cables from a Dell 2161DS work with this unit?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. Typically, Computer Interface Modules (CIMs) are proprietary devices that won't work in different manufacturers' devices. In a best case scenario, the CIM might not be recognized. In some cases, however, using an incompatible CIM may damage the switch or render the CIM itself inoperable.
In light of the potential damage, we always recommend using the manufacturer's designated CIMs.
Question: How do I take remote from my local system?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,
If we understood your question correctly:
- To use the Java-based Virtual KVM Client, go to: http://IP-ADDRESS
- To use the Microsoft .NET-based Active KVM Client: http://IP-ADDRESS/akc
- You can also use HTTPS, or the DNS name of the LX assigned by your administrator (if applicable)
For further information on how to connect and setup your local systems with the DLX-116 please refer to the DLX-116 Quick-Start Guide (PDF), and the DLX-116 Manual (PDF) starting at page 10.
If on the other-hand you are trying to connect to your local user access port remotely (essentially a second Over-IP user):

Raritan DLX Product Introduction Video:
Question: I was wondering with the Raritan Dominion LX Series, if I chose the DLX-116, if it is possible to purchase a secondary remote access user later to field upgrade to 2 users?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,
The user count is dependent on circuitry so it would not be possible to expand the amount of users connected to the DLX-116. The tiering capability would allow for management of up to 256 computers by linking DLX units, but only from a single remote console.
You may want to consider opting for the 2-user Raritan DLX-216 instead.
