Network (NIC) VT Terminal connection?

» close window

The Question is:

Is it possible to configure a VT510 terminal to connect directly into a network

The Answer is :

  Yes, you can connect most any serial terminal using a terminal
  server -- a terminal server is a form of a NIC, and specifically
  intended to allow a serial terminal to connect to most any host
  system using IP or (often) LAT network protocols.  Both single-
  and multi-port terminal terminal servers are available from a
  variety of sources.
  The VT510 series does not include an integrated NIC; comparatively
  few serial terminals have incorporated a NIC into the terminal
  X Terminals and host systems running terminal emulators are
  all obvious alternatives.
