How to connect ASR-33 to a PDP-11 DZ11 Panel

I have successfully hooked up multiple terminals
(two VT52s and an LA36) to my PDP-11/34 using an
EIA DZ11 (M7819), and they are all working perfectly
on my RSTS/E V7 system, which I SYSGENed for two
DZ11s. I have also installed a 20mA DZ11 (M7814)
and its associated distribution panel and now I'm
ready to hook up a 20mA VT52 and an ASR-33 teletype.
I have good documentation on the VT52 and how to
get it connected, but the documentation that I have
on the ASR-33 does not seem to show how to connect
it to a computer.

Can someone who has done this before give me some
pointers? This surely is a trivial task, but I have
not dug deeply enough into the documentation to
find out how to do this yet. My ASR-33 works fine
in local mode, punches and reads paper tape just
fine, and now I want to hook it up to my system.

Thanks for any help that anyone can provide.
