[rescue] Using a Lightwave with a 220R

Has anybody out there use a E220R with a Lightwave Server Switch 
5000?    It's a 5 port KVM switch with 13w3
and the keyboard connector.  It's of course been discontinued for quite a 
while (isn't all rescue stuff?) and
I don't have a manual for it.  I've tried googling for it, and have also 
posted on one forum for Lightwave.de, which
seemed to have some info on this model...but it looks fairly inactive.

Anyway, there seems to be some magic that I haven't quite figured out.  Got 
a Raptor graphic card with the VGA plug out, to
an adapter for a VGA to 13W3. That, running straight into the monitor works 
just fine.  But thru the Lightwave, I get no
picture, I get green and amber lights.  Which is like when I've got signal, 
but the monitor is asleep.
(at least that's what I get with the other Sun monitor that's hooked up to 
my PC switch box....)   The monitor is a
standard Sun GDM 20E20, which I've not had any problems hooking up to 
otherwise.  I also checked the cables and
ports with other Sun boxes.  All work fine with other machines, and the 
other adapter I had again, worked directly
hooked up, but not not thru the Lightwave.

Any ideas?
