If there are ten switches in each pack, on different sides of the RS232
connectors at the back, then this might be a re-badged TeleVideo 950. If
you're looking at the back of the terminal, the righthand dipswitches
control comms parameters, and the left set control things like key click
and local editing.

For a quick test, see if switch six (counting from the left) on the
lefthand switch pack controls reverse video.
