I rescued a Chase Research IOLAN Terminal Server, model TS16-18229. It's 
a desktop unit with 16 DB-25F DTE ports and a 10 Mbps Ethernet 
connection (both AUI and coax, with a switch to select between them). 
White desktop unit with external power supply. No other connectors or 
sitches (no reset etc). 2 green LEDs, power and LAN IIRC.

The problem is I can't find any documentation for it after an hour of 
googling and browsing www.perle.com. Chase Research was acquired by 
Perle and they only have docs for the newer IOLAN+ devices and no 
mention of the older IOLAN at all.

I assume it uses bootp+tftp to get configuration, but what should I give 
it as the conf? Have not tried snooping the Ethernet yet. Nothing also 
comes on any terminal ports on startup, but I have to recheck whether I 
have the right cable or there is some DTE-DCE confusion on my side.

Does anyone have some docs/pointers about this termserver, or has used 
one and remebers something about the configuration?
