You know your VAX is fine. That is a good thing.

You need a different way to talk to the serial console. The simplest is to 
find a terminal server on Ebay or in a dumpster somewhere and hook it up to 
tha VAX. Some of the DEC Server 200's have gone for $1.99 on Ebay so they 
are not an outrageous solution. Even without telnet you can connect your PC 
to the DECserver 200, and the DECserver 200 to the VAX, and then connect to 
the VAXes console when you need to using the same lame terminal program on 
the PC. :-)
