IIRC the serial boards were the 8 pin RJ-45 type like on network cables.
Forgot if the cables were wired exactly wired like network cables.  I also
have a load of adapters for DB-25/RJ45 so
I can hook up almost anything to it.  I had bought a metric buttload of RJ-45
connectors and a whole lot of 8 conductor flat cable at the time.  I was going
to set one up in my classroom if they didn't put in the network that was
promised.  Never had to, magically PCs appeared during the summer.

I think it's just a matter of setting the serial parameters.  I forgot what
they were but I had several terminals working with my 3B2 system.  I think
your terminals would work fine.
