Remote Insight Boards

I have two EISA and one PCI based Remote Insight Boards in machines but all are missing the keyboard interface cables making them useless other than performing a reset. I found one cable on Ebay but that turned out to be only for the Lights Out Edition board.

A while ago I'd tried fabricating my own "Y" cable when I still had an original. It never worked because I was using solid copper (24AWG) which kept breaking when I'd crimp the pins. I lost the original and my notes on the pin outs. Can someone tell me where I can buy the "Y" cable or where there is a diagram I can use to make my own?
