PLEASE BE ADVISED: Lack of desire or interest to get Java working with the KVM console does not shift the onus of performing server actions to our support team. Management of your server remains your responsibility. Effort may be necessary to access your older server's KVM console; the motherboard manufacturer will not release firmwares for older servers with newer functionality like HTML 5 consoles. We're happy to work with you to get Java working with your server, and even happier to sell you a newer and more expensive server with an HTML 5 console, but we won't perform server actions for you just because "it's easier" for us to just do it for you. 

Don't want to use Java at all? Neither do we, and we're happy to terminate your old Java console server and re-deploy you onto a server with an HTML 5 console.
