Prolly a pretty newbie question but I don't have much experience with older
systems. I get them or buy them and usually it takes a while before I try to
even boot them. I was trying that with this vaxstation 4000/60 that came
with monitor, keyboard and mouse. But when I connect the keyboard it doesn't
boot. When I connect the keyboard while the system is running it just
powersdown, so I expect the keyboard is bad. It is a sun keyboard so it
might not even belong to the system and I connect it to the mouse port
according to this site.

I tried connecting another keyboard which belongs to a console but that
wasn't possible either. So I need to know how the "port" for the keyboard is
called on such a vaxstation system, so I can look for one. Any assistance is
this direction is welcome.
