  9600, 8, no parity, ttya.
  The 3/60s have a switch Normal/Diag. When in Diag, it will try both
consoles. I think that the 3/80s don't have this switch, but if you unplug
the keyboard, I think that they will try ttya. I'm not certain about this,
having never owned a 3/80.

  I thought that sun3/sun3x was integrated now? My 3/60s still run 1.2,
since I don't use them much...
