I have a SuperMac C600 connected to a Sony MultiScan Monitor CPD 100ES via an Interex universal Mac to VGA monitor adapter. This adapter is a 10 slider dip switch. It is connected to my SuperMac's DB-25 SCSI port. But during a recent shifting of gear, I lost the original dip switch settings and no longer have the guide that came with the Interex adapter. The Supermacs DB-25 SCSI port is the problem because I have found on the internet the settings for Mac DB-15 to HD-15, but not Mac DB-25 SCSI to HD-15.

Can anyone help me?

I don't understand what a monitor adapter has to do with SCSI.

Also, please don't compose entire posts in ALL CAPS.

Umax made the supermac monitor port DB-25 which is SCSI! That's where the adapter plugged into.

Are you saying that you have a monitor that plugs into the scsi port of your macintosh computer? If so, please post pics. I've never seen one of these before.

I was not aware of any SCSI monitors. Using SCSI for video out on the Toaster Macs was not uncommon though. There were at least a few boxes that provided a VGA output via a SCSI connection.

It would be interesting to see pictures for sure.

I was not aware of anything using a SCSI port for video output. I know that there were monitors that plugged into the monitor port in addition to other ports for tasks like color calibration. But video through the SCSI port?
