   I had a couple of VS2000 (Same box, with graohics) and routinely used
a nearly-standard PC-type RS-232 null modem cable. You have to short
two pins at the VAX side, but I do not remember which two. I found the
pinouts in some FAQ or other online.

   Also, remember that on all the desktop VAXen I've run, the *printer*
port is the console. Zane, Eric, is that absolute or no?

   Sorry I don't have the pinout, but IIRC, it's the same cable needed
for the MVII console.
