Yup, 86 is right for the Plus.

And for Ethernet, you can get a box that hangs off the SCSI port
and provides the Ethernet ability.... The device in question seems
to have been made by one firm and rebadged and sold by others...
Seems like "Nova" is part of the name of the one I've got. Mine has
10-Base-2 (coax) and AUI ports, so it'd need a transceiver to do
10-Base T, I suppose....
