Well, I need some help.
I got an ICL Quattro PC
I repaired the PSU.
It powers up, the HD spins and seems to load something.
Then no led activity, may be it's waiting for user input.

I have no ICL terminals.

I tried to connect with a straight serial cable and a terminal emulator,
9600, 8,N,1
No answer in either port.
Tried also a null modem cable. Same stuff.

The DB25 ports have a female connector, so I tried a straight cable,

The straight cable shows some random and spurious characters.

But there's also a DB15 female port.

Do you know how to connect to this old beast?

I'm getting no answer just because the Quattro is not working or I'm
wrong somehow?
