Bob,

I assume you mean find a 2044, since you already have a 2043.  Since
the 2043 and 2044 are both tier P30, you are fortunate to have such a
jump available relatively cheaply.  I just had a customer do the same
type of thing to a smaller CISC box to get over a 50% increase to let
them ride out the CISC for another year or so. 

There are a few used equipment price lists I try to follow on the web,
although I do not necessarily have experience with the brokers so this
is not a first-hand endorsement.  One broker lists the 310-2044
feature price as $2400 thru Nov 30, with the standard caveat of price
and availability subject to change.  International Systems Management
lists a phone number of 770-840-8994.

Another web page which purports to show the average price from a
monthly poll of 250 dealers shows the value of the 310-2044 as $4500
in August, $3500 in September, and $4900 in October.  So there must be
a fairly volatile market for that particular feature.

I'd call several brokers if I were you, and/or ask others on this list
for broker recommendations.

I believe it is port 0, address 0 of the second controller.
