You are connected to catbert. Catbert is a PDP-11/73 (in a 23 PLUS chassis) running 2.11BSD. Here is a photo of catbert.
2.11BSD UNIX was installed from a DLT4 tape drive via a second Emulex UC07 SCSI controller. While this tape drive is much newer than both the PDP-11 and the controller, it still speaks SCSI tape. However, the diagnostic programs on my Emulex card failed to command the drive.
I have spare a TKQ50 tape drive controller card, so hopefully at some point in the future I will be able to find a TK50 drive - which should be more fitting of the era.

Thank you to Marc, my friend who passed away in January 2018.
I would not even have this PDP-11 if not for him.
