Novell's LAN WorkPlace products enable DOS, Windows 3.x, Windows 95,and Windows NT 3.51 and 4.0 workstations to run TCP/IP and IPX/SPX applicationssimultaneously. For example, with LAN WorkPlace Pro for Windows 95 and NT,a Windows NT workstation could use TCP/IP to access a UNIX host and IPX/SPXto view IntranetWare drives. The methodology used is based on the emulation of software faults in device drivers and observation of the behavior of the overall system regarding a comprehensive set of failure modes, analyzed.

(see Historical Note and Conflicting Pinouts below)

Here is a scheme which solves four of the six RS-232 hassles:

  1. All cable connectors are the same sex (male).
  2. All cable connectors are of the same type (RJ-45).
  3. There is no distinction between DTE and DCE plugs and sockets.
  4. You can mass-terminate the connector cables with a crimping tool.

The other two hassles that remain are:

  1. Baud rate matching.
  2. Flow control problems.

All of your cables are wired the same and have the same connectors.

  • No more “null-modem” or “null-terminal” adapters.
  • No more changing pins on cable connectors.
  • No more building special cables for each kind of hookup.
  • No more soldering or messing with pins in connectors.
You can connect:
  • a computer to a modem
  • a computer to a printer
  • a computer to a terminal
  • a computer to another computer
  • a terminal to a modem
  • a terminal to a printer
  • a terminal to another terminal
  • a modem to a printer
  • a modem to another modem
  • or any other combination.

The main idea

Onto every serial port of every piece of equipment at your site, you screw down an appropriately-wired adaptor from DB-25 or DB-9 to RJ-45. Now every serial port has the same kind of socket: RJ-45 Female, regardless of whether its underlying connector is DB-25 or DB-9, DTE or DCE, male or female. Furthermore, every serial port now transmits and receives data and control on the same pins.

As of December 2020, this StarTech.com DB25 to RJ45 adapter is a good choice:

Hardware Flow Control and Modem Control

There are three signal wires for each direction: one data and two control. The control lines are used for modem control and/or hardware flow control.

The cables

The cables are not wired normally (i.e. with each connector pin connected to the corresponding pin at the other end of the cable). They are wired 'with a twist', or 'mirror image', or 'side-to-side reversed', or whatever you want to call it. That is, pin 1 at one end of the cable goes to pin 8 on the other end, etc. (N.B. this meaning of 'twist' is distinct from the use in the term 'twisted pair'.)

Because of the way the adaptors are wired, the 'twist' cable connects each transmit pin to its corresponding receive pin at the other end of the cable. Don't use straight-through cables; they won't work at all. If you buy ready-made cable, it'll be 'straight-through', and you'll have to remove the connector from one end and crimp on a new one with the wires reversed (8 to 1 and 1 to 8, etc.). Female to female RJ-45 connectors are also available for extending cable lengths, but remember, two twist cables joined with such a coupler make a straight-through cable.

Making the cables

The biggest caveat to this system is that you'll have to buy or borrow a crimping tool for making the cables.

Twisted-pair cable

This scheme was intended for use with jacketed ribbon cable, in which all the wires are side-by-side. 'Twisted pair' cable, by contrast, has four pairs of wire, each pair twisted against itself along the cable's length. If you use twisted pair cable, such as 'Category 5' cable, you should not wire your cables as one normally would for RJ-45 (e.g. for 10-Base-T, telephone, etc.). Rather you should wire them so that wires 3:4 and 5:6 make pairs. Other pairings will be susceptible to data signal crosstalk. The pairing of the remaining wires is not important, but 1:2 and 7:8 will be about as good as any.

Cable length

The RS-232 standard specifies a maximum cable length of 75 feet at 9600 bits per second. Ha! In practice, lenghts of 800 to 1000 feet work just fine. If you're trying to get maximum length and/or highest speeds, be sure to heed the section above on 'twisted pair cable'.

The adaptors

Inside an RJ-45 adapter, coming from the RJ-45 socket there are 8 wires with male (or female) DB-25 (or DB-9) pins crimped onto them. You simply push these pins into the holes in the RS-232 connector and then snap the adapter housing on. The color coding of wires in RJ-45 adapters is fairly standard. The adapters are available from many electronics stores.

RJ-45 Pin Numbering

RJ-45 pins are numbered as shown on this male RJ-45 connector.

DTE Devices

Computers and terminals are typically DTE (Data Terminal Equipment) devices.

Some DTE devices require the DSR (Data Set Ready) signal. This signal is usually provided by the DCE device. If you have a DTE device (such as a terminal) that requires the DSR signal, wire pins 20 and 6 (4 and 6 on a DB-9 connector) together. This way, the DTE device will receive the DSR signal from itself when it asserts the DTR signal.

DCE Devices

Modems and printers are typically DCE (Data Communications Equipment) devices.

On some printers, pin 7 of the RJ-45 adapter (the brown wire) should be connected to the Data Set Ready (DSR) line (pin 6 on both DB-25 and DB-9). Read your printer documentation to find out if it provides useful handshaking signals on DSR instead of DCD.

DB-9 Pinout Misinformation

The DB-9 pinouts above were incorrect on this page until corrected on Feb 26, 1998.

I have to confess that I received the DB-9 pinouts from Kenneth J. Hendrickson and I reproduced them without ever checking them or using them. Then I got email from Mark Lentczner, who said the DB-9 pinouts were backwards. I found confirmation of the correct pinouts here:

Thanks, Mark Lentczner!

Conflicting RJ-45 Pinouts

U.C. Berkeley

Somewhere at Berkeley they use or have used different pinouts.


Some Cisco equipment uses a similar system on RJ-45 with different pinouts.

Motorola MVME embedded computer system boards

Subject: RS-232 on RJ-45s

I thought I should alert you to the fact that your conventions conflict with those employed by Motorola on some (maybe all?) of their MVME embedded computer system boards. In particular, we use MVME-162LX boards in many of our customer training classes (look for the link to 'Customer Education and Training' down near the lower righthand corner of the home page). These boards put TxD and RxD on the innermost pair and SG on the pair outside of that. I'm not suggesting that you change your conventions (since I'm sure a bunch of people are already using it). It might spare somebody some grief someday if you put a little caveat to this effect into your web page, however.


This standard is not a cable-twist system.

I notice that Dell use RJ-11 for RS-232 in a different way.

In a bizarre way, I would say.

Historical note

I put this scheme together in the summer of 1987. (Thanks to folks at UC Berkeley for the idea. Their wiring is slightly different, I gather for historical reasons, but the basic idea was there. If I can find out who really originated this scheme, I'd like to credit him or her by name.)

Yost Engineering Port Devices Driver Download For Windows 7

About 1994, the scheme was picked up for the 2nd edition of the Unix System Administration Handbook, where it was given this name. Then I found out that Kenneth J. Hendrickson made a web page out of it. He graciously gave me permission to use his HTML. What you see here is a new version which is more the way I wrote it in the first place and which corrects a glaring omission: the cables must have a 'twist'.

When I first published this scheme in 1987, I wrote 'Maybe one day before the year 2,000, the world will have a new, simple, high-speed, flow-controlled, standard type of connection for point-to-point applications currently using RS-232, with an adaptor available to talk to old, RS-232 equipment.' As I write this in 1997, we are starting to see Apple's 'FireWire', a 100MBit/sec superb technology for point-to-point connections, with 200 and 400-MBit faster optional versions. And add to this the fact that the equipment that hooks up using FireWire technology is plug-and-play and can be connected or disconnected while the system is running, and you see we indeed have come a long way.
