Tony: That pinout is great, many thanks! It will help me if I have to
build a cable.
I don't suppose that there's a part number on yours? If there are any
for sale the p/n might help me find one.
Rico: If I have any HP-UX it will be on one of several SC80 hard
drives - I have no removable media. I don't know about the 200 series
- my 9816 has no keyboard and I haven't even begun to think about
solving that problem.
