3151 terminal keyboard

I recently inherited an IBM 3151 terminal, but no keyboard! As some of you
may know, this terminal used a keyboard with an RJ-45 jack on it.

I have been able to find pinouts of both the terminal keyboard connector and a
regular AT style keyboard. I connected all the wires appropriatly, but no
go. The terminal still says "Problem in keyboard".

so, two questions.

1) is it even possible to use an AT or PS/2 keyboard with a 3151 terminal?

2) if so, how?

ps, I am not subscribed, so please cc to me.
