DEC server

 about digital DEC server 700 & 200MC

They are sort of routers providing decnet or serial and ethernet connections. Their original purpose was to connect a VAX/PDP to terminals (and printers). It is able to connect a LAN to up to 8 modems or terminals or PCs or printer or... to use the serials as DECnet connections you'll need MJ8 (or MMJ) to 25pin transceiver (the 6 signals are the same in RS232 and in MJ8)
