The console is on the 9 pin printer port. This connector has not the
"usual" 9 pin serial pinout. Have a look at the VAXrchive for the pinout
/ wiring diagram to a PeeCee like 9 pin serial port. (It is somthing
simple like 7-7, 3-2, 2-3 or 7-7, 3-3, 2-2 plus a connect from pin 8 to
9 (?) on the VAX side. This connect is needed to force the VAX to the
serial console.)
