The KVM docking station will provide ~100W of power to the attached Host and Slave PC.

Yes!  You will need to download DisplayLink drivers which can be found here: https://www.displaylink.com/downloads

Additionally, you will need to install the KMShare software which can be found in the download section on the product page for the VT4900.  Both KMShare and DisplayLink software will need to be installed on the systems you would like to connect to the VT4900.

Not directly, data cannot be transferred between the Host and Slave PC. An intermediary device such as a flash drive is required or a Cloud network connection.

No, the Ethernet connection will only be detected by the Host system. When changing which system acts as the host the Ethernet connection will switch to the new host.

Ensure you have the correct orientation selected to allow your mouse to move between the Host and Slave PC. Click the KMShare icon and select the side which you would like to move the mouse between the two systems.

One or two systems can connect to the KVM docking station. When successfully connected extended displays will populate and show in your Display settings. Pressing the mode button on the front of the KVM docking station will change the display assignment. There are four different modes. (1/1/1, 1/1/2, 2/2/2, 2/2/1)

In your Display Settings, does it show that monitors are recognized in the arrangement? If recognized but not displaying, ensure the correct input source is selected on your external displays.  If the displays do not show in display settings, be sure that the dock is connected to your system properly and the DisplayLink software has been installed on your system.  Additionally, confirm that the connections between dock and display are secure.

Can I transfer data directly from one system to another while attached to this docking station?

Yes, switch which mode is in use with the button on the front of the KVM docking station.

This is possible however, a device such as the VT70 is required. This will add external displays to the current host system.  The USB-C port on the front of the KVM does not support DisplayPort over USB-C.

The KVM Docking Station is only capable of delivering 100W of power to each attached system. The error message being received is likely due to an inadequate amount of power than the proprietary power supply normally supplies. This is not indicative of incompatibility but rather slow charging.

The KVM Docking Station is capable of functioning with Windows 7/8/8.1/10 and macOS 10.10/10.11/10.12

No, this product will only function when used with the supplied USB-C to C cables connected from KVM to host system.

Yes, you can.  These ports will function with any device that is compatible with USB 2.0

Yes!  As long as both OS’s can have DisplayLink software and the KMShare software installed this will function just fine.

The attached systems require a USB-C port that supports DP Alt Mode to achieve all 3 displays.  If your system does not support DP Alt Mode then only x2 displays will be functional.

The USB-C port on your laptop must support power delivery to receive power.  Additionally, please be sure that you are using the supplied USB-C cables.

No, your laptop will require a USB-C port for the KVM Docking Station to function properly.

No, the USB-C port on the front of the KVM docking station is intended for USB-C data transfer devices.

The VT4900 KVM docking station utilizes two different chipsets to operate. The two DisplayPort outputs will utilize DisplayLink drivers and can operate on any version of USB-C. However, the HDMI port will require a USB-C port featuring DP Alt Mode or MST support.

Yes, however, an active adapter is required to make the signal type translation. It is also recommended to use an active adapter if required for either of the DisplayPort outputs.

 No, the software does not currently allow this hot-key to be altered.

This hot-key can be used on a keyboard that is attached to the specified keyboard port on the docking station. 

Yes, however, the mouse can still be moved to the secondary although not shown in the Display Settings arrangement.
