Yes, but you'll need the adapter that plugs into the 15-pin D-Sub on the
DEC3000. Even though contact looks the same as the the one on the
VAXStation, the pinouts are not the same.

It's quite likely that the monitor from the VAX can be used, but that's
depending on which model. It might need som=E9 readjustment to work on the
DEC3000, but you should not attempt to do that unless you're really sure
what you're doing since the currents inside are lethal.
