This is more of a midrange-l kind of question.  There are some people 
there who probably have those card numbers memorized.  What I suspect is 
that you need a special cable.  This cable has a multi pin end that plugs 
into one of those cards.  At the other end of the cable is a box.  This 
box has from 2 to about a dozen twinax ports, depending on what model 
card, etc.

[Security400] Questions about an Old AS400 System

Hey All,

  I hope Im asking the right place for this. Ive looked through the
old forums with little or no luck. I've got an old F10 as-400 id like
to play with, however, I do not have the software for the TwinAX
connection nor the drivers for the dec5250 emu ? card (Ive tried the 
drivers for the cem5250 drivers blue screen the box), from perle's
site.. no go. I can't get the proper ones because im not a <insert
speical circumstancial name here to get drivers> person. :(

Anyways ive searched and searched for how to console into the box. Ive
found a little bit of information.. but still nothing thats helpful.

There are a million ports on the back ... none of which seems to be serial 
On the rear for ports ive got,
db25, male, #6152      (console maybee :D ?)
#2609 -? 
2x 9 pin females , 0-3 and 4-7, this is where the twinax console plugs in 

bottom/back has a 15 pin female, and a 50? pin  male

Cards are installed, from 0-8 repectfully
Slot 1 #2700
#2 - 2615
#3 - 2624
#4 - 2623
#5 - 6140
#6 - 3120
#7 - 3120
#8 - 2587

in the back cabnet their are two black male db 25 connectors with the

There is also a IPL7404 unit with many others. On the back seems to be
a 9 pin connector, male. the front has a female 9 pin. Is this some
sort of a console ?

I've got tape with the OS on it too.. as I understand it I'll get 60
days to play before it has to be erased....

Can anyone help me out here as to how to get into this thing ?
(console or other?)

Any help would be greatly appreciated.... And yes I realize this is a
counter weight, but its still something im interested in looking into.
