I thought I'd better get this on the mailing list archives. The problem
was the cable. Apparantly, the RS/6000 7012 relies on DSR/DTS. I did
enble that on the console, and tried several cables but apparantly, no
cable I tried had these wired. I have now used two null-modem connectors
in series and this works.
