Console cable for MPE system

Need to move system console to another part of data center. I need a longer cable. Does anyone know what cable options I have to connect an HP terminal 700/96 (25 pin male) to console port on back of Nclass (9 pin female). Does anyone know the part #. Can I use ethernet (rj45) cable?

Please have a look at page 18 of the HP e3000 N-Class servers system specification (

The local console cable product number is 24542G, part number is A6144-63008. It's a 9-pin female to 25-pin male RS-232 3-meter cable. You can then use an RS232 straight thru cable to extend the distance.
