I see, thank you.  A serial cable with the DB25F
right connectors, one for that 'A' port on the
Ultra 10, and another one for the "PRIMARY PORT"
on the Ampex 220 should do, right?

Also, what are the other two connectors near the
'A' serial port, please?  One of them is labelled
with a sign which resembles a monitor with two
vertical lines at both sides, and it has three
rows of pin sockets.  The other one looks like an
RJ-45 port, and it's a label like this: <777>.

Thank you.
