Several forum message indicate that should see the familiar messages such as "****DISARMED**** Ready to Arm" or whatever. Further tried sending some arm key sequences via Screen and Telnet. Got no response as seen from other Alpha panels on alarm system. The last !Sending.....done above is such an attempt

System information
Vista-21iPLTE running firmware 4.1.16
*191 set to [1][0], address 18 enabled, (have Alpha keypads on 16 & 17)
Pi3b running Buster Lite, manual build from AD wiki.
comm via serial0 (ttyAMA0)
LED on A2DpHat is blinking at about 2 to 3 times per second.
NOTE the AD2pHAT came loaded with beta software V2.2a.8.9b-306

Web app always has keyboard in "Please wait...loading"
snippet from log when running web app

NoDeviceError: ('Error opening device at alarm:10000', error(111, 'Connection refused'))

Telnet to device - get normal alarm status. Can send disarm cmds, they are received by Vista alarm (other panels respond).

Keyboard screen just sits in "waiting...."
All other screens/tabs in webapp appear to work as expected.
