I think that those are just a rebadged Central Data SCSI-based terminal
server. If so, Digiboard distributes drivers that work for those, but
I haven't had much luck getting one to work on a modern Linux
distribution (and that was 5 years ago I was trying). The AIX drivers
worked fine for me though.
I'd suggest a Xyplex Maxserver 15xx/16xx or Xylogics/Bay Network/whoever
Annex 3 or Micro Annex, or a DECserver of some sort.
