One of my favorite systems, Multiuser Z80. I had several of these about 1990.

Only one of the serial ports is the console port, zero IIRC. Should work with
a standard serial terminal, Wyse 50 etc. Your MicroTerm should work. Uses a
serial printer also.

I am not sure I can trust my memory without pictures as to the layout of the
db25. IIRC (L to R) Ser Printer, Terminal, Terminal, Console? I don't
remember if there was a serial modem port or not.

No SW any more, sorry I hope you find some, it is a nice little computer.
