I am looking for a single computer IP KVM that doesn't require Java on the client to connect.
I have a computer that needs to be in a location that isn't easy to get to, but occasionally I need to connect to the console during the update process. In-band connection methos like ssh/vnc/etc are not enough I need to send keys to select a specific boot device.
I have an older IP KVM that uses Java, but the vendor is no longer really supporting it, and the jars have an expired signature. It only works with Java 8, doesn't seemt to work with the Adoptopenjdk build, and Oracle recent license changes more or less make this an unusable piece of hardware.
- IP KVM
- VGA + USB connections to computer
- Cross platoform client connectivity from at least Linux/Windows.
- Looking for something less then $500 if possible.
I have been searching Google and various sites for IP KVMs and almost everything I am finding either doesn't provide enough details about what is required, or requires Java.
So to summarize I am tired with fighting making newer Java versions work with my older IP-KVM. I want something that does not require java at all and preferably is and HTML5-based interface like why my newer Dells have on the latest iDRAC.
