What cable is this?
« on: 16:42, 20 November 12 »
I need to order a cable like this, but what is it called? Is it a plain "straight through" serial cable or is it a null-modem cable? Or something else?

  • It's not broken, it just hasn't been fixed yet.

It's a standard Modem Cable (straight-through). On a Null-modem Cable pins 1 and 6 of the 9way connector would be bridged and connected to pin 20 of the 25pin connector and pins 6 and 8 of the 25way connector would be bridged and connected to pin 4 of the 9way connector.
