I guess I should give a bit of background (in case you are curious). I've got a Sun Ultra2 that I would love to start using, however I need to run a console line from it to another system of mine to console in. I'm going from DB9 (Serial) on the PC to the RJ45 console port on the Sun. I'll be making the required rollover cable while I'm at work tomorrow. Just need to put this adapter together and I'm golden! :(

If it's a standard pinout you should be able to buy an adapter for a few bucks at Radio Shack. Also not a bad idea to check out the manufacturer's documentation rather than assume they read the same wiring standard you are reading.

Steve - I'll try that one. I've found the same pinout elsewhere, however what confused me is yet another site gave me a tad bit different pinout.

 

Tim - I did buy the adapter for a couple bucks (at Fry's however). But you have to do the pinout yourself (some assembly required :thumbup1: ). Meh, we've got a ton here at work. I'll throw lunch at one of the network guys and have them do it for me.

 

Thanks for your help!
