Headless Server the Easy Way!

Headless Server - The Easy Way! Setting up a home server and cannot boot without a monitor? This video describes a very easy way to fix the problem using an HDMI Dummy Adapter.

Use the HDMI Dummy Adapter for the following applications:

  • A server that your run that you do not want to connect a monitor
  • A Windows computer you use only for RDP connections
  • A Raspberry PI server
  • An office OpenVPN Server
  • An Office NAS


You can easily purchase the adapters described in this video on Amazon.

The above items are great tools that every tech should have in their toolbox. We use these on a regular basis in our office at Clustered Networks.
