A KVM over IP is very useful device, that can save you a plenty of hours and kilometers to remote server. This device can provide keyboard (K), video output (V) and mouse (M) via IP protocol, directly into your browser. You can easily install your server and/or fix kernel or firewall from your home, when something is wrong.
Visit KVM address via your favourite browser, supporting HTML5 (every modern browser support this), in our case https://kvm3.coolhousing.net. Enter user name and password, which you received from our support and press the Sign In button.
After login click on the name of assigned KVM session, in this case HPM11.
On the next page click on KVM Session HTML5…
In the newly opened page, where you will see the login of your KVM (in our example HPM11), you can turn off a pop-up blocking (Pop-up blocker).
If you do not want to turn off this blocking (this is very wise decision), you can grant an exception, in our case to kvm3.coolhousing.net, via button the Option, which is located in yellow stripe (used in the browser Firefox).
After granting the exception, another window will be occured and informed about KVM viewer launching.
Most likely, the KVM connection won´t be successful, therefore we recommend you close the window with the connection with the Close button, and press the F5 key (page refresh) on the page whose header is your KVM login (in our case HPM11).
Now you can see the window with KVM viewer launching again.
And then KVM over IP environment will be ready for you and you can control your server as if you were sitting physically by the server.
Thanks to HTML 5 is the use of KVM over IP very simple, quick and spare some your costs.
Our KVM also offers the possibility to use a Java client via KVM session, see the third screenshot of this tutorial. However, the use of the Java client is more complex, and many Java client-specific exceptions are required, and the client is also very picky about the version of Java itself. The Java client is fully functional, but we highly recommend to use the HTML5 client.
