Product Description

Enables turning one PC into many with Windows Multipoint Server 2012 or Fedora 18.

For WMS 2012, OS and CAL license is not included, but a licensed driver for the hardware is. For Fedora 18, works out of the box without any additional licenses or software. Also works with WMS 2011, Fedora 17, and Userful Multiseat Linux 2011.


Many users can simultaneously share a single machine. After setup, plugging in a DC-125 zero client automatically pops up a new, independent login screen. Any user can sit down any any of the connected zero clients, and then log in as if it was their own computer.

Connectivity and Technology

A single USB 2.0 cable between the server and each Zero Client carries all data and power. All Zero Clients on share a common 480 Mbps USB 2.0 bus per host controller. Recommended for web and application use only. Not suitable for motion video or gaming. Standard female VGA/D-Sub port to monitor drives modes up to 1280x1024 / 1440x900, using internal DisplayLink DL-125 chipset. Standard 3.5mm audio in and out for stereo speakers and microphone.


Dual Core or 2Ghz CPU or better recommended. Search "DC-125" on plugable.com for detailed hardware and software compatibility information.


No AC adapter needed. The DC-125's two free USB 2.0 ports have sufficient power for connecting a USB keyboard and USB mouse (higher power peripherals like USB flash drives not supported).

Included in Box

USB 2.0 Docking Client, 5-meter USB 2.0 A to B cable, 75/100mm VESA monitor mount, desktop standing mount, quick start guide. Drivers available via download.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent little box 17 July 2011
By mac100
First, I must make it clear that I have taken the DC-125 'off piste' so my experiences, while largely positive, don't reflect what you will see using the product in a more official capacity.
I'm using the DC-125 to provide a second seat on a computer running openSUSE 11.4; that means I have a separate keyboard, mouse, monitor and sound running down a single USB cable from my main computer. It's pretty impressive from a large-matchbox-sized box fixed to the back of the monitor! (as well as the stand pictured they also supply a VESA mounting that screws to the back of the monitor so keeping everything very neat).

This setup is not supported (yet) by Plugable but they have been enthusiastic in their encouragement and say they are looking to get things working 'plug-and-play' with popular Linux distros soon. However, at the moment some knowledge of configuring X and your display manager is necessary if you stray outside the supported setups. Nevertheless, it can be made to work very well in a short time, and now provides a good, sharp, responsive display and no noticable lag with keyboard or mouse.
Most programs work fine on this so long as they don't require 3D or compositing (eg flash desktop effects and many games). There is the odd desktop program that crashes but the developers of Okular, at least, appear to have this in hand.
All in all this has saved me the cost of another computer, and I could add further seats for the cost of another DC-125 and monitor should I need to.
All in all, very impressive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worked out of the box 18 Feb 2013

I bought a Belkin port replicator and it didn't work even after downloading extra drivers. This box, however, worked straight out of the box. It automatically installed all the drivers it needed and works perfectly. This is the best deal port replicator on the market.

great product, i brought a couple of these to try as i am starting building a new computer system based at our works using a central computer (often called server or in the old days a mainframe) this computer will have many terminals connected to it, a terminal being 1 plugable dc 125 with mouse, keyboard and vga monitor connected to it,

the computer system runs windows multipoint server 2011 free for 60 days! after trying a few i find this the best, download the software from microsoft burn onto cd then install it like you would any new operating system onto your new computer server, follow the instructions, its pretty simple the only real thing to catch you out is updating your graphics software, it promts you to do this so make sure your know what graphics card you have on your computer before you start so you can update the rite drivers online, windows 64 bit drivers work just fine, after all that its simply a case of pluging in your plugable dc 125's and you can generate as many work stations as you wish based on how powerfull your computer is, its amazing how many you can connect to a single computer without noticing any difference in performance, i find the 1st thing to start to struggle is the graphics card this more so when multiple users are watching video, so good graphics card is a must, starting point for computer is get the best you can afford, no less than 2 gig of ram and dual core processer, this should run around 4 users on basic internet or office work, on the higher end a 16 gig ram machine with a quad core 4 gig processers can handle upto 30 users without much trouble. the plugable dc 125 is without doubt the best product for this use and as far as i can see 1 of the cheapest.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Product 17 April 2013
By Serena
Verified Purchase
I was looking to buy a port replicator or docking station at three times the price, so I had a little hunt around here and saw the ad for Plugable DC-125 and I hummed and arhed for a bit but picked this up for a very tidy sum from Amazon I was a little hesitant at first. Item was dispatched quickly set it up and the device was really compact. I fitted it at the back of the monitor the software drivers needed a update and a little tweaking in Windows 7 ... and now it works like a charm. I have had the mouse freeze a couple of times but i just unplugged the USB connection and it re-set itself and i did not have to power off anything got it working with 3 monitors at the moment and it is great for the price I would recommend. I will keep an eye on the mouse freezing but I would buy another one for the other office.
