Well there has been a considerable amount of interest on this one.
I need to clarify one or two things.
1. Being a collector of DEC equipment I was trying to do it with an all DEC
2. I only have two DEC Servers both 200/MC. I can down load the program to
them from my VAX with no problems.
3. It appears that later models of DEC Server do support Telnet.
(Which ones and has anybody in the UK got a spare one?)
4. I have already done it but I used a windows internet modem simulator.
I have loads of VAX's I wonder if it's possible to do Telnet in, serial

Side note: I remember reading somewhere that the old PortMaster 2e's
could be used as a "reverse terminal server" (that is, telnet into the
box and connect to a particular serial port for console access) with
some optional software. Anybody done that?
Replies can be off-list, I'm not sure how relevant this is.. other than,
it would be handy to use to provide access to some old serial-driven gear.
