You just made me remember something. Joe, dig up the OpenVMS FAQ. If
you're trying to connect via the 9-pin (or is it 25-pin) serial connection
you'll probably have to make a special cable to connect, the pinout on the
KA630 class systems is a bit odd as I recall. There is a MMJ adapter, but
they're pretty rare.
