For a temporary hack, you can always use a standard RJ45 connector
with the tab removed, and then use more easily obtainable supplies to
put a cable together from junkbox parts.

Speaking of odd connectors used with terminals, I need to locate a
10-pin modular connector (and a way to attach it to a cable) before I
can use my AT&T 705MT terminal with my VAX... and need to have an MMJ
connector on the other end of the cable. Since the 10-pin connectors
are still RJ45 connectors, I'm wondering if my crimping tool will work
with these... one way to find out. Alas, 10-pin modular connectors
don't appear easy to find locally.

In case anyone else finds one of these 705MT terminals with a missing
keyboard, note that any PeeCee keyboard with a miniature DIN connector
will work with it.
