I’m putting together a “toolkit” of serial and Ethernet cables and adapters. I’ll put together a few sets with cheap online prices so if anyone’s interested, I can get you set up for a reasonable price. Here’s what I have so far:
Clear plastic case to hold all
10’ Belkin laplink cable. Serial null modem cable with female DB9 & DB25 connectors on each end.
10’ red, slim CAT5e cable
slim M->F RJ-45 to crossover adapter
6 colored nylon wire straps
Null Modem Adapter DB9 Male to DB9 Female
Null Modem Adapter DB25 Male to DB25 Female
DB25 Female to Female Low Profile Parallel Gender Changer
DB25 Male to Male Low Profile Parallel Gender Changer (2)
DB9 Female to Female Low Profile Serial Gender Changer
DB 9 Male to Male Low Profile Serial Gender Changer (2)
Null Modem Adapter DB9 Male to DB9 Male (2)
You should be able to make any combination of Male or Female, Null or not, 9 or 25 pin cables - and then some. I’m at about $60 so far.
Any ideas of small, but useful converters, adapters?
