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 
				1=remote mode

EN (RS232 Conrol line defeat) 	0=ctrl lines defeated 
				1*=control lines defeated!

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...)
