Thanks - that was exactly it - I borrowed the cable from a Kaypro IV
and it work perfectly. Unfortunately it's not a standard RJ-11 phone
plug, it's the small one - can't recall the id right now, but it's the
same as is used on the handset of many modern phones. A handset cord
is probably a bit light (wire) for this purpose, so I'll have to see
what I can dig up....
