Remote access

KVM Switch Direct |  Remote access

What do we mean by Remote Access? The ability to use the keyboard, monitor and mouse of your remote computer to behave as if they were directly connected to the target computer.

How does it work? - These devices are connected directly to the target computer (or KVM Switch) capture the video, keyboard, and mouse signals, compress and convert them into packets, and send them over an Ethernet link to a remote browser application that unpacks and reconstitutes the dynamic graphical image.

Adderlink IP - Secure dial-up access to your KVM switch

Manage your computers from anywhere in the world with the AdderLink IP. The AdderLink only requires a KVM (keyboard, video, mouse) connection to your computers and doesn't need any software to be loaded on your servers.

  • Gives full control even during boot up, BIOS level or computer crash states. The ADDERLink IP will work even if the controlled devices are not.
  • Real VNC is used. Free of the limitations of HTTPS, Real VNCgreatly enhances video performance
  • Employing enterprise grade security (using AES 128 bit encryption and RSA 2048 bit public key authentication) as standard, the ADDERLink IP is further enhanced by the use of Real VNC, allowing for the creation of ciphered user communications.
  • When attached computers crash or require resetting often the only solution is to power them off and back on again. The ADDERLink IP allows for the integration of power switching devices that can be control through the user interface
