TL891/892 Serial Cable

Does anyone know the pinouts for the Fibre Channel Tape Controller II RS232 serial cable? This cable is used to configure the controller through the serial port on a workstation.

Thanks

Re: TL891/892 Serial Cable

The user manual .pdf has a good picture to refer to for the RJ-11 side, The female DB9 connectors should have numbers on them. Use a 6 wire cable, cut 'n connect to the DB9: 2TX, 3RX, 5GND, 7RTS, 8CTS. Example: #2 on the RJ-11 is GND, twist it with the #5 on the DB9 - check it with a continuity tester. If it does'nt work, try swapping the TX & RX. reboot the FCTC to get in - hitting "enter several times" never worked even after I finally got it right. Good Ref: www.pin-outs.com/datasheet_11.html
