Question: Are these limited to use with Belkin switches? or can I go remote machine -> Belkin adapter-> ethernet -> Belkin adapter -> TrippLite KVM Switch ?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,

Belkin OmniView SMB Server Interface Modules are only compatible with Belkin OmniView KVM Switches.

KVM Dongles used with Cat5/6 KVM switches are almost always proprietary and designed for that specific KVM series; Please feel free to reach out to our sales experts for the correct KVM dongles to use with your TrippLite KVM Switch.

Question: How do you assign an ip address to this devise?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. This particular dongle is used to attach a server to one of several Belkin OmniView SMB CAT5 KVM (Keyboard, Video, Mouse) switches.

The dongle itself would not have an IP address, it is simply a way to connect the server to the KVM switch. In that sense, it would share the IP address of the server.

That being said, it is often possible and/or necessary to assign an IP address to the KVM switch itself (if it is an KVM-over-IP switch), depending on the model. The procedure for accessing the administration control panel may be different for each KVM model.

For your reference, linked below is a manual for the Belkin OmniView SMB CAT5 216/232 series of IP KVM Switches (F1DP216A and F1DP232A) that explains the procedure for setting up the IP address on page 13 (15th actual page).
