Need serial RS-232 Pin-Outs for VA7100 controller

Does anyone have the pin-outs to the VA7100 serial port? I’ve looked through a bunch of manuals and searched for about 2 hours.

I’m going to a customer site and really don’t want to waste my time with a break-out box etc.

I do know it’s 9600,N,8,1 XON/XOFF

I’m looking for something like:

Cable:
PC Controller
9pin female to >>>> 9pin (male or female?)
2>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>3
3>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>2
5>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>5


Thanks in advance for your help

You need a "normal" null modem cable (female/female).

Hope this helps!
