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.
