   On page 21 section 7.4 of the 6400/6600 hardware reference manual there are
illustrations of keying connection jacks.  It looks as though a straight key will key
dots only when used as shown.  Is this correct or is some information missing?

You need to turn off the internal keyer.  Then it becomes a straight key input.

Duane has it.  On the P/CW panel of the SSDR control panel de- select the "IAMBIC" button (grayed out) to use an external keyer or straight key.   The trs connector "TIP" does double duty.
