Miguel,

What you're referring to is accessing the KVM box itself via IP, which
the Aten does allow. What Aten *also* does is use CAT5 cable to link
the KVM switch to various adapters which plug into the server(s). It's
the signalling on those lines that Brian was referring to, not
remotely accessing the KVM itself.
