Product Highlights

  • Connect to a "headless" server
  • No server-side software to install

The KVM Console to USB Laptop adapter allows any USB-equipped laptop to connect to a "headless" server and emulates the monitor, keyboard, and mouse. Perfect for any server, PC, ATM, or kiosk in need of maintenance, this simple access and control means total portability for mobile administrators and repair technicians.

Most servers do not require additional accessories, and there is no server-side software to install. Power comes from the server-side connection, and the adapter allows for access to the BIOS post and the ability to handle full configuration of the attached machine. Any need for an unwieldy monitor, keyboard, and mouse solution is eliminated.
