What? You worked only a few weeks? :-)

It's most likely a Printer port.
If it's a good DEC emulation, this might help.

 From the VT102 manual (which had VT100 Advanced Video and printer port
built in):

"In Setup B, the arrow keys and SHIFT select either the modem [normal
computer port] or the printer [aux] interface features. When you hold down
SHIFT, <LEFT ARROW> selects modem features, <RIGHT ARROW> selects printer

So, in Setup B, <SHIFT><RIGHT ARROW> should select the printer features.

<CTRL><KEYPAD ENTER> toggles AutoPrint (line at at time).
<SHIFT><KEYPAD ENTER> does a print screen.

<KEYPAD ENTER> is supposedly the "Print" key.
