Solution: Login to the KVM via the terminal server (see the UP for user/pass). If it is sitting at the '=>' prompt. Type 'boot'. The KVM will boot up. Watch the screen and you should see the process starting up. When '<name of KVM> login:' appears, the KVM should be operational. If you're already at the '<name of KVM> login:' prompt, type "reboot" to reboot the server. Watch the screen and you should see the process starting up. When '<name of KVM> login:' appears, the KVM should be operational.
Solution: If locally connected, use the Default Hot Key sequence to reset the keyboard and mouse. If using the IP Viewer, click on "Reset Mouse and Keyboard" on the access control screen.
Solution: Check the mouse settings of the server. Mouse acceleration should be turned off and the motion speed should be set to medium. See page 107 of the users guide for more info. If those settings check out, move the mouse around rapidly in a circle until the local and remote mouse resync (its kludgey but Cyclades doesn't have a better answer at the time if this writing).
