I have a T4010 with a fujitsu port replicator. My guess is the T4020 would be the same. All described below is for the T4010. If you look under your T4020, there should be rectangular port (just off set of center towards the back of the machine). This is the connection point to the port replicator. Easy to do, it is essentially self alighning with feet holes in the port replicator to accept the back feet on the laptop. .
When installed, the machine slightly angles toward the user when in laptop configuration. (Similar to an external keyboard with the feet on the keyboard extended. Same type of angle.)Very comfortable.
When the computer is attached to the port replicator: on the computer you have access to one USB port on the back of the computer, the RJ11 for the phone connection, and external sound all on the back of the machine.
The external monitor and networking connection is not accessible on the computer. Neither is the power connection accessible on the laptop.
There are connection points for external monitor,RJ45 (networking) and power cord, all on the port replicator. Also there are 4 additional USB's on the port replicator. Not to confuse the issue but in total you have access to 6 USB connections -- 4 on the port replicator and 2 on the notebook --1 on the back and one on the side of the computer.
If you can visualize this, essentially there is a cut out on the right side of the port replicator so you have access to the RJ11, USB and sound port on the computer. That is, the stuff between the power connection and the RJ45 on the machine.
Technically, Fujitsu recommends utilizing the power switch located on the port replicator to turn the computer on and off, but I still use the power switch on the computer with no problems to date. (Over a year) Also there is a slide button on top of the replicator you push/slide to disconnect from the port replicator. Very easy to do.
Hope this helps. Sorry no picture taking capabilites on this end.
