Well, that's why I specified the LK450, as it'll plug into a PS/2 keyboard
port, as will several other DEC Keyboards (I'm not sure of the top of my
head which is the proper one for OpenVMS). OTOH, if the laptop was a Mac
I've found the LK201 emulation for eXodus to work fairly good, once I figured
out how to set DECterm to print the '<' and '>' when I hit the correct keys.
