In the last weeks I managed to get a keyboard as well as a monitor.
So I could install OPENVMS 7.3 on my VAXStation 4000/96.
Now I need a mouse.
There is a miniDIN connecto on the rear of the box, but the pin layout is different from PS/2.
So if there is an adapter available ....
A mouse for the VAXstation, DEC 3000, or the DECstations EXCLUDING the Personal DECstation line (Personal DECstation has a system that is apparently unique to that line) will work. They're proprietary and you'd need to convert both levels and signalling protocol to have a PS/2 converter work.
So far I've pretty much exclusively run my VAXes over the network and via serial console. You don't loose much of anything compared to a local head.
