|Some years back (circa 1988 or so), when I was working in DEC-10 development in Marlboro, I wanted to re-create the Teletype access experience. I had come into a working KSR-33, and had a MicroVAX I at home with a 4-port DZQ11 on it. SO....|
The teletype went on one serial port (via a current-loop to RS232 adapter).
The DEC-supplied 9600 baud modem went on another.
Dial in, connect to KL1026 (the DEC-10 development box), and bathe in the memories. (Even in 1988!)
I suppose if I wanted to telnet in a more useful way, I'd probably get a hold of some genuine DEC VT terminals, like the VT52, VT102, VT220, and use them on serial ports through a Linux box.
