Octel 250 monitor

Our monitor looks like it finally gave out. The monitor cable isnt the standard VGA connection. Is their some sort of gender changer I can purchase to plug in a newer monitor onto the CCF card monitor port? Thanks

RE: Octel 250 monitor

It uses an RS-232 from the CCF to the Terminal. This is usually a Wyse or VT-100/220 type terminal. You can't use a VGA monitor for that.

We may have some but what you need is a Wyse 55 plus or a Wyse 50 if you can find one.

Find an old PC with Procomm on it and connect via the cable to Comm1 on the PC. Set the terminal emulation to Wyse 50 and away you go.
