There's a 50-pin connector in the same style as the DB25. I bet you a
nickle that's a DD50.
The 411 boxes have the newer high-density SCSI-II 50-pin connectors. I
also believe these are called HD50 and not DD50.
"HD" probably stands for "High Density." That's a guess.

Actually, now that I scroll down, Dan's page shows what it calls
"DB50" connectors, which would seem to be properly called "DD50" going
by the other page's info. So the facts dovetail. :)
