SmartStart Test of Com Ports

Customer requested I run SmartStart on a DL380 Gen-4 to determine if the two integrated com ports are OK. I ran 7.9 SmartStart and it tested OK. My question is: Can I connect a crossover cable between the two com ports to test the transmit and receive capabilities of the two ports or will SmartStart know there is a crossover connection. Maybe there is another way to test the transmitting and receiving of the ports
at low and hi speeds.
