9600 8N1, xon/off (software flow control).  I use a 3 wire cable with
only transmit, receive, and ground signals going from the MicroVAX II
console port to a VT340. 

However, the MicroVAX II DE-9 console port pinouts aren't the same at
those used by the IBM AT DE-9 configuration which is what just about every
pre-made cable is using these days.  I don't know the pinouts off the top
of my head, but they should be buried in the archives somewhere.
