Most PC serial ports also require a cable with a female DB-9 connector. Terminal connections will vary, requiring
either a DB-9 or DB-25 connector, male or female. Serial cable options between an HP switch or routing switch
and a PC terminal are shown in Figure 2.6.
NOTE: As indicated in Figure 2.5 and Figure 2.6, some of the wires should not be connected. If you do connect
the wires that are labeled "Reserved", you might get unexpected results with some terminals.
