Sun Enterprise 220R to Dell Poweredge 2161 DS-2 KVM

Hi there,

I have a some Sun Enterprise 220R servers with graphics card and one 8 miniDIN female socket for Keyboard/mouse - I would like to connect this machine to a Dell Poweredge 2161 DS-2 KVM for remote control.

The solution I have come up with is as follows - If anyone has used this solution or similiar, can you let me know if it worked or not please?

Sun 8 miniDIN Female socket -> USB-SUN-R -> SIP (USB & VGA to RJ45) -> RJ45 Cable to KVM
VGA Connector -> -> SIP (USB & VGA to RJ45) -> RJ45 Cable to KVM

NOTE: the SIP cable in the above layout is the one cable - Its just easier to lay it out as above - same for the RJ45 cable

I would be only using one USB connection on the output of the USB-SUN-R device

Any suggestion greatly received - Maybe there is something easier than i have envisaged



SIP cable: =
