[nycbug-talk] The serial cable jungle
Tue Feb 22 15:44:11 EST 2005
I'm trying to find some information on how to pin those little
RJ-45<->DB9M adpaters such that I can hook up a typical Intel server (as
opposed to Sun box) to my Digi PortServer II.
Google ain't showin' me no luv.
A few things that I know for sure:
* A Cisco-style console cable doesn't work -- anyone know how *these*
puppies are wired?
* 10-pin RJ-45? wtf? Digi and their altpin scheme is evil
* Digi part number 76000697 looks like what I need, except it's a
bazillion Canadian dollars (well, it's more than making my own
adapters using generic stuff I can pick up at the electronics supply
* The PDF "Digi Terminal Server Cable Guide" only lists DB25 examples.
Does anyone know of a reasonably accurate DB25->DB9 pin mapping guide?
