PDP 11/23+ success and stupidity

I've finally managed to get the OEM 11/23+ to boot from an RL02 and run XXDP
(all I could find on RL02 media at the moment).
The lack of correct operation of the terminal was down to two things......
I read the DIP switches as inverse :-(
I got the RCV+ and a ground wire swapped in the terminal cable :-(
Major lesson from this exercise? Don't try and read the switches or make a
cable in a hurry....
