Is is possible to connect Dec VT220 into 9 pin female port of a PIII cpu using 25 pin to 9 pin adapter?
VT220 comes with two 25 pin ports (male & female) so it requires 25 pin cable but the PIII cpu has one 9 pin male port which was used with serial mouse once upon a time.
Another doubt of mine is, being a novice, whether it is possible to do so 'cause because the lesser number of pins at the cpu end may loss required/total number of pin signals. (I've heard that every pin sends/receives signal). Not a very silly question, I hope.
