Yes. Each of the ports can be controlled seperately using the web interface as well as using the Telnet and web based API.
Item 1 says "High Power 15A on off switch". Does this mean the total load for the 8 outlets or 8 x 15 amp?
The total load of all of the outlets cannot exceed 15 amps @ 220V. The maximum load on a single outlet is 10 amps.
How many be used on the same network?
You can use as many as you have IP addresses. On a regular local area network you could have over 200. Each power switch needs to have one IP address.
