RS232 cables

Post by exxos » Tue Feb 20, 2018 10:43 am

Been looking for the past half hour to find a 25way female to female 9pin cable to link my ST to my PC via serial ports.. Needs to be 3 meters long... can't find any anywhere :( mostly seem to be 2meters :roll: Anyone know a UK source for one ?

It's been 4 hours now, haven't you made one yet? :P

I'll have a look in my big box 'o cables, I did have one I'm sure.

Fleabay only seems to have 9-9 pin or 25-25pin, and not anything between. I can order you one since you're not on there if you like, they are quite inexpensive.

Does it need to be straight thru or null-modem?

I could only find this... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2m-Serial-RS ... Sw5ZBWJ7A9

Assume null-modem... its to attempt to connect the serial port on my ST to terminal on my PC.. that evilbay one likely work, just a bit of a problem as my PC and ST are not exactly close together so 2M is a bit of "push".

You want me to order you one? You've sent me plenty of stuff, so it's not a problem. I'll need your address.

ah no worries :)

Take some garlic ;) oddly my girlfriend was laid up really bad a couple weeks ago, I decided to take a couple of garlic tablets each day, as I normally catch anything going... had a tiny tiny cold, and that was it.. could be coincidence.. but more research is needed ;)
