My hp notes say that the dip switch settings are:
SC (HP IB) 1*=system controller
0=not system controller
DIS (DISPLAY ENABLE) 1=disabled
REM (REMOTER TERM ENABLE) 0*=local mode
EN (RS232 Conrol line defeat) 0=ctrl lines defeated
1*=control lines defeated!
Hmm a typo..
To enable the remote console you should only need to set the remote mode.
If you have more than 1 serial port with remote set (maybe on a 4 channel
card), the one with the lowest select code is selected. (Well thats what
the book says...)
