Install RT-11 or BSD2.11 with TCP/IP network via Ethernet (DEUNA or DELUA)
and you can just FTP image files in and out of the machine.

Yes, you can, but the second pair will be at a different CSR/vector that
you have to configure. In order to get RSTS/E to see it, you'll probably
have to put them where it'll autoconfigure it.
