Hi all,

 

I am now the proud owner of a Waysmall, I have just found that I need a Null modem cable to get the thing up and running and accessible. Does anyone know the Pin numbering details so I can either make a cable myself or else get one ordered. As I am in Germany I don’t want to fork out $38 for a $12 cable, if I get it from Gumstix.


If you wonder where that "silly" gummstix connector came from, which *really* only uses three wires out of eight (i.e., TX, RX and GND), it is from an Apple Macintosh.  See for example:

Maybe you can find one of those "locally"?

Best regards,

Bruce
