I run a small network of 3 pc's using NT4 Server and 2 Win95 workstations.
I also have an HP-UX network machine which I want to connect my server to via Com3, as Com2 is already used for a dialup modem to the internet, and Com1 is the mouse port.
How do I get NT to recognise Com3, and what address and IRQ settings should it have, and then how do I run Telnet via Com3.

NT will recognize Com3 as soon as you install the hardware for it, as long as there are no conflicts on IRQ or I/O-base. Just remember that unlike DOS/Windows, NT will not allow shared interrupts, so don't give Com3 it's standard IRQ which is 4 (like Com1).

For running a serial host connection, use Hyperterminal.
