Rs232

Recommended Posts

Anyone happen to know the proper pinout for RS232 (DB9 to RJ45) adapter? I've been doing some searching online, and find a couple postings that contradict each other. Both ends are female on the adapter. Thanks :(

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! :(

Does this help? Look about halfway down the page.

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!

I used to have a lot of those adapters in the back room (I'll have to look again). But they should still be readily available. Here's what they look like.
