Console for XG-7100 1U on Raritan Dominion DKX3-108



  • Hello,

    I just received my Netgate KG-7100 and am about to set it up. I am currently running a USB extension cable from the Mini-USB port directly into a PC, which should work for the initial install.

    However, as a long -term solution, I would like to connect the console to my Raritan KVM. This is a top-of-the-line KVM that uses various CIMs (Computer Interface Modules) to interface directly to a computer's VGA/DVI/HDMI/etc., keyboard, and mouse. I don't see a CIM that offers a female USB A jack that could be used with the cable that comes with the KG-7100.

    Does anyone have any ideas that I could try in order to get this to work? My first thought would be to throw a Raspberry Pi between the two, but I'd prefer a low-power device that converts the video USB to VGA (or serial) directly and passes the keyboard and mouse through to a USB jack.
