Not sure if this is the appropriate place to post this, but it's the closest I could find. I would like to experiment with null model cables and I have a few questions.
1. I have this cable I picked up at a thrift store. I know it's that cable because it has the original packaging with the model number. According to the page linked above, it is a straight-through cable, not a null modem cable. Could I use this cable in conjunction with a female to female null modem adaptor?
2. Could I connect one of the female ends of the female to female null modem adaptor directly to the computer's serial port without another cable?
3. Are null modem adaptors and gender changers the same thing?
