IF1 LAN sockets

I finally put my hands on a couple IF1's... I have a couple questions about the network sockets, however. First of all, are you supposed to stick "mono" (2 lines) or "stereo" (3 lines) jacks in the sockets? Then, there are 2 sockets, does it matter at all where you plug the cable in, if you are connecting, say, 2 computers? I am assuming not. And finally, are the cable "crossed", in some way, or are they just "straight"? I mean,
do you connect line 1 to line 1 and line 2 to line 2, or do you cross them? If it's anything similar to an ethernet, they should not be crossed (and two lines would do it), but I don't know... I hope some of you (who maybe owns the original cable, so he can test it for me...) knows the answer!

Thanks in advance.

    In any IF1 network there must be two 'free' sockets (see below)
    Suspect the cable is mono but i'd never put it in writing.

    I suppose it does not matter which sockets are left free... I have figured out that it is mono jacks, and not crossed.

    WOS holds a copy of the IF1 manual, in which your questions gets
    answered, AFAIR.
