I did find a HP cable with a 24 pin card edge connector on one end and a 25
pin D connector on the other. The 25 pin connector only has a few pins in it
(typical of HP serial cables) including 2, 3, 7, 13,and 25. I traced the
wires back to where they would appear on the HS terminal card and it appear
that I have the right cable for the box. At least I won't have to kludge
togerther a cable. WhooHoo.

I have plenty of dumb terminals laying around including a number of old HPs.
So, based on your message, it sounds like I have everything necessary to
make the computer "talk" to a terminal.

This would be great!

Another question: I'm assuming the placement of the cards in the cage
determines the "Address" or LU of the card. Does it matter which slots the
cards go in or is there an accepted standard for this? Which slot does the
HS terminal card (console) go in?

Thanks Again,
