Hi All,

I'm looking for the pinout of the DB9 to DB9 cable comes with the C5 series switches?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Hi Rich,  The pin assignments are in Enterasys C5 Gigabit Ethernet Switch Hardware Installation Guide 2-23

Thanks Dan.  Unfortunately, that only shows me the pinout of the console port on the switch.  I'm actually looking for the pinout of the DB9-to-DB9 cable that comes with the switches.  I need to duplicate the pinout of that cable in order to make a custom length one for a specific installation.

It should be a null modem cable.
