I can check at home. My 11/34A console is connected by a self-made
connector. Just a few wires. Which DL11 board do you have?
M7800, M7800-YA or M7856?
AFAIK, the M7856 is most common.

My guess it is an M873 variant.
In that case it possibly contains boot ROMs.

I would opt for:
- an RX02 with the M8256
- an RL02 with the M7762

Sorry. No experience with that.
I will report back tomorrow, as promised, unless somebody else already
told how to connect the console.

PS. You may find some info on the 11/34(A) on my website.
