I was unaware the SS20 had a parallel port (as indeed were others
who replied to me). It does, but needs a special cable, as the port
is a slimline 26.

Many thanks in particular to Dan Pritts, Ric Anderson, and Niall O
Broin for pointing this out to me.
Most of the responses I received were directed towards connecting
to a serial port or directly to the network, however parallel ports
and Appletalk are all the 6MP comes with.
