Correct.  The 715/64, /80, and /100 use a external box as described.
The connector that plugs into the back of the computer is similar to,
but larger than, an HIL connector.

The photo at http://www.unixnerd.demon.co.uk/ps2_cable.jpg appears to be
something homemade.  If he had the proper connector to plug into the
back of the 715 it might work, I don't know what else it could be.  A
real HIL to PS2 adapter is $400 and isn't so simple.
