Does anything happen when you press return (maybe a few times because Autobaud
is enabled) on the VT420?

$ REPLY /ENABLE on the console before you try this might also help - if VMS was
able to read from the terminal but not write to it, you might see nothing on
the terminal but you could get an OPCOM message to say that a login attempt
timed out, something like "error reading command input".
