Trying to login Compaq 1850R via RIB

I am trying to resurrect a Compaq 1850R (in fact its the NAS server version) I know its running W2003, but i do not have a screen i can connect to it, so i cannot use the console.
It has a RIB board, but if i Telnet to the RIB IP address it prompts me for the username and password OK, lets me in but displays a grey screen with the message

"Monitored Server Console is in Graphics Mode"

and i can't do anything with it.

If i now point a browser at the same address, it looks like the board responds as i get a flash of the login screen (i think!) but then it automatically redirects to /index.html, which gives me a "Cannot disply this webpage" message.

This server is of at least 2002 vintage, the bios and RIB board probably havent been updated since then, although the server was running until the end of 2006

Your board is not recognizing the video output of the newer server screen.

change your resolution to 600x800 and 60 hz and you will be able to get in.

That's why they pay me the big bucks,
