Cabling Cisco Router to HP-UX pci MUX

I am trying to find out if there a a cable that goes from the PCI MUX (looks like 10 pin rj45 to rs232) to the router cable ( rs-232 to scsci-serial connector).

I am basically connect to a router through the MUX ( modem) connection on a HP 9000 L2000.

I have this setup now (7 years), but the cable was hand made. If I tried to use a different (new) router it will not work. Old router is flaky.

If no cable I need to Know the pins from the MUX, and the pins from the router I would need to make my own. Or web sites with information.

Thank you.

You did not specify the MUX model number, just that it's a PCI card. Unfortunately HP has several MUX cards for the PCI bus.

The MUX card in a L2000 might be a J3592A (8-port MUX) or a J3593A (64-port MUX).

If it's any of those, here are the pin-out definitions:

If it's another type of HP MUX card, go to http://docs.hp.com and click on "I/O cards and networking software", then "Multiplexers".

Use the "ioscan" command and/or physical inspection to find out the type of the MUX card, then find the correct documentation according to the model of the MUX.

First sorry Matti I did not know that Someone had replied in Febuary.

The Card has 8 fingers (cables).

I also found out the cisco made a change to thier cable since this router was first put in 10 years ago. I will need to make a new cable


Thanks for the web sites though that will help alot. I think I will be able to get it.
