CISCO Rollover cable using a regular Patch Cable

March 9, 2013

If you dont have a roll over cable for connecting to a Console port on a CISCO router then you can also make and keep with you this handy Serial Adapter that turns a Regular Patch Cable into a roll over cable you can use toconnect to a Console port on a CISCO device.

Go out to any place like Memory Express or Radio Shack / The Source and get a Ethernet to Serial Adapter that comes un pinned and then you can make your own adapter.

Pictures will be uploaded in next fix but here is the pin out.
