View Full Version : Will this work for serial cable?

02-18-2002, 01:32 PM
My local rat shack doesn't have a 9 pin FEMALE plug. They do have the solderless 9 pin MALE plug. Could I simply connect the 3 wires to the male plug and use a female-to-female 9 pin adapter? I am asking now because I have a little travel to get to the store. Rural area. I was actually suprised that they had the other items I needed.

Seems like it would work. Just make sure that the adapter properly matches the wires to the other side.

That should work OK.

You could also just buy a 9-pin serial extension cord, and cut one end off. Look in the computer cables area for a 9-pin serial, or 9-pin mouse extension cable.
