Hi every body ,i hope you are doing well.
What is the maximum length of the VGA and keyboard cables that can be used on sun ultra 2 machine without reducing the signal.
As i want to move the monitor connected to an ultra 2 server for a distance about 40 meters.
thank you in advance.
VGA is a high resolution video signal and requires a properly designed cable to carry it over a long distance. Many short VGA work over a length of 1,5 m and do not comply with the transmission standards for long distances. For long distance transmission, a 75 ohm coax cable is needed for each signals. This type of cable is usually made to order an very expensive. Standard cables over 30 m are rare.
I think your best option is to use a TCP/IP network and use VNC (Remote Desktop).
Thank you Dude for your reply.
For my connection between the ultra 2 servers and the monitors i am using DB13W3 SUN cables for video, and I want to extend this distance.
For remote connection I thought about it, but for operational requirement this option was not accepted, and the end users need monitors to be connected to the servers.
