Okay, so I'm puttering around with some iMacs, planning to set up a print server on a slot-loading Strawberry.
The logic board on the Strawberry was dead, so I swapped the processor, VRAM, and drives into the logic board from a Bondi with a dead screen.
As I put the Bondi logic board into the Strawberry case, I noticed an extra port: next to the video connector is a small round port that looks remarkably like a serial (printer/modem) port of olde. Those of you who are old enough to remember beige Macs would recognize it: about 3/8 inch in diameter, with 9 pin holes.
Is this in fact a serial port? Would I be able to hook up my Personal LaserWriter NTR, or my QuickTake 150, or my old MIDI controller? If not, does anyone know what this port does?
I'd appreciate any ideas.
