Default help with kvm

hi guys, your expert help needed again. i got given a kvm switch today which goes by the name of: Hewlett packard 4 port console switch j1493a

my problem is that i dont know how to switch to the other computers connected on it. on my other kvm it is scrl lock scrl lock down. i tried that but that didnt work. my friends kvm is cntrl cntrl 1/2, i tried that and that didnt work.

so if anyone has this kvm please tell me what the sequence of keys are. and if anyone knows other sequences used for other kvm's, please tell me aswell as it is worth a try!

Download a program like Gadwin Printscreen and choose a different hotkey.
