Some models of Silent 700 had a connector (I seem to remember it as maybe 
being DA-15?, instead of DB-25?) that permitted it to connect to external 
modem, AND permitted external devices to connect to the Silent 700 
internal modem, or a loop back (defaulted to jumpered to that internally) 
ofconnecting the terminal to its modem.
