HP KVM switch won't network?


I bought several HP KVM Server Console Switches so to be able to remotely support racks of HP servers in a lights-out datacentre and now that have installed them into the racks I cannot see how to connect the console switches into an IP network.

There is no RJ-45 port on any of the three switches except for the "A" console tiering port, but the supplier insists these are IP server switches and therefore the "A" port must be dual personality.

I cannot find any documentation to support this.

How do I access these console switches over IP?

The model number of the devices we bought was 336045-B21.
