Nope. TCP/IP and LAT, as well as two-port serial console.

Nope, does X-Windows as well over IP (thats what this was *designed* for;
XWin over LAT *or* TCP/IP)

I've been doing XWindows via TCP/IP all afternoon, displaying stuff
from a SPARC machine running Solaris. Would you like some pictures of
it displaying the Solaris Management Console, or Netscape, perhaps?

I've got an LK401-AA and a "hockey puck" 3-button mouse attached.

Mine says "Terminal Manager 2.1".

No need. It does TCP/IP natively; I dont have to even think about LAT.
