    If you can't connect directly your node to an IP network you need
    to simulate a pots network over telnet with something like this:

    That was a very interesting video. Brought back a lot of memories.

    I started my professional life with an 11/780 Vax, lot of vt220/320, and VMS.

    Now I run a microvax 3900 with SIMH and it's all like 30 years ago. :)

    I used to have an AS400 working, but it's now taken out of mission. While it
    lasted, it was a real challenge, especially making the network working with my
    XP system.

    I had a special network card for token ring to ethernet conversion -- can't remember now how it was done, but I remember that I had quite a
    lot of coax cables running around in my basement.

    Love the VAX... :) I had one running on SIMH for a while too. Probably should
    bring that backup... love the OS. :)

    My, what a chunky thing. I too had possession at home of an AS/400 for a while - it was about the size of a two drawer filing cabinet. Never did get it fired up at home though. Sat at one end of the settee for a some time in "coffee table" mode - until the significant other said to "get rid of it!"

    The model I had used that fat coax cable for its terminals as well - I even had
    a couple of cards for the "PC" and software for a terminal emulation.

    Didn't have TCP/IP for it as I recall (this was some decades ago).
