2016-07-02: set up the terminal as console for the ND-110 Satellite today. It works. I discovered that the "C" key on the keyboard is broken, it sticks when pressed. Probably lacks a spring. Temporary workaround: removed the keycap.

2016-06-30: testing - pressing the "LOKAL" (local) button allows me to write characters on the screen - it works.

2016-06-30: setup - holding down the CTRL key and pressing "HJÄLP" (help) key twice gets me into the setup menu, which reads left side

"Terminal system"

right side

"PROMS: 729697H/729698H"
below that is the navigation help:
"Cursor up/down : next/prev field"
"Cursor right/left : change value"
Return               : select alternative"
Escape              : exit"

below that is the label for the Pushkeys, P1 - P8, these changes depending on which setup screen you are in.
