Alpha Station 200 4/233

I recently configured a new Alpha Station 200 4/233 and all is up and running.
The DEC field rep installed a DEClaser 3500 onto the MMJ communication port
via a converter box hooked to the printer.  The problem is I don't know what
the device name is on the system.  I imagine it is probably a TT port, since I
see a TTA0:, but I was unable to

$ COPY file TTA0:

I got no reaction from the printer.  And I can't find the port designation in
the manuals.  I'm thinking I have a hardware problem with either the cable or
adaptor.  I'd like to know where DEC cross-references a specific device with its
system device name?  Which manual?

I assume that the converter box is going from MMJ (serial) to parallel on the
printer end.

1. Alpha Station 200 4/233 Memory Upgrade


I'd like to upgrade my Alpha Station 200 memory from 80 MB to <more>MB.  I
need help -- any experience/suggestions out there?  FYI, 80MB is 96%
utilized on a hobby 7.3-1 machine with minimum TCPIP support and Motif.

Questions that occur to me are:

1. Max size?
2. Upgrade in pairs?
3. What kind of memory is it anyway?  Commodity SIMM?
4. Any only line discussion or documents I can reference?
