In the past you may use this DB9 RS232 to RJ45 console cable

But at present the DB9 COM port are fading step by step in PC

And in the coming days, the micro OTG cables may also be popular

Drivers are available which allow FTDI devices to work with the following operating systems:

  • Windows 10

  • Windows Server2012

  • Windows Server 2008 R2

  • Windows 7

  • Windows 7 x64

  • Windows Server 2008

  • Windows Server 2008 x64

  • Windows Vista

  • Windows Vista x64

  • Windows Server 2003

  • Windows Server 2003 x64

  • Windows XP

  • Windows XP x64

  • Windows ME

  • Windows 98

  • Linux

  • Mac OS X

  • Mac OS 9

  • Mac OS 8

  • Windows CE.NET (Version 4.2 and greater)

  • Android

  • Windows RT

Support for WinCE7.0
Initial functional testing conducted by FTDI has shown that the FTDI drivers function as expected on Windows CE 7.0

Support for older versions of Windows Desktop

NOTE: Microsoft have ended support for certifying XP and VISTA through their WHCK test program. As such current builds will still work on XP and VISTA but are not Microsoft certified.


Differences in Driver API

For most of these operating systems two types of driver are available: Virtual COM Port (VCP) drivers and direct (D2XX) drivers. The VCP driver emulates a standard PC serial port such that the USB device may be communicated with as a standard RS232 device. The D2XX driver allows direct access to a USB device via a DLL interface.

To locate the drivers you want to install for a device, select which of the driver types you wish to use (VCPor D2XX) and then locate the appropriate operating systems.  With the exception of Windows 98 and Windows ME, all devices are supported in each driver package.


If a VCP driver is required for Android please refer to the following application note: TN 132 Adding FTDI Devices VCP Driver Support to Android

Our Services

 Shenzhen Sinforcon Electronics Ltd is a company specialized in USB RS32 cables, USB UART cables, USB RS485 cables, panel mount cables, HDMI&DVI cables, lvds cables, etc. The integrated USB serial converters chips are FTDI FT231X, FT232RL, CP2102, PL2303HXD, PL2303TA, etc. We offer the customized cables for the customers of 50 countries and regions.

 This cable is for updating DB9 to RJ45 cable, you can reference the following DB9-RJ45 cable information:

The standard formerly known as RS-232 or RS232 became EIA-232 then TIA-232. Most of the world still calls it RS232 but many names are used. RS-232D or EIA-561 defines the pin assignments for using RS-232 with RJ45 connectors. For an RJ45 male connector, the one you'll find at both ends of a Cat6 cable, pin 1 is the left most pin when you look at the connector with the tab up and the cable going away from you. It's easier to buzz out a cable with the tab down, in which case pin 1 is on the right, thus leading to a lot of potential confusion.For the DB9 female connector pin 1 is the top right and pin 6 is the bottom right when you look at the connector with the cable going away from you and the side with five pins on top. At this point it's probably good to mention that you only need three lines to have a functional cable. You'll need RD, TD and ground. All the other lines are used by software to control data. The three critical lines are handled by hardware. But most of us don't write the software at both ends, so it may wait forever for a signal transition that will never happen.

 Cisco RJ45 to DB9 Serial Console Pinout

If you're familiar with Cisco routers then you've seen the RJ45 serial console connector they use, and the light blue RJ45 to DB9 cable. This does NOT follow the EIA-561 standard.

This cable works fine with minicom or HyperTerm because the Cisco hardware and software handles it. It's certainly possible to wire your RJ45/DB9 connectors following this pinout. If you do, please mark the connector clearly so the rest of us won't assume it's an RS-232D or EIA/TIA-561 pinout.

The only potential problem with this is that DB9 pin 1 for Carrier Detect (CD) is missing. Normally we would see pin 1 and pin 6 (CD and DSR) connected to the DTR output from the far end. But as I can attest, the cable works. And I've buzzed out the cable to confirm that pin 1 and pin 9 are not connected to anything.

Cisco uses two lines for ground to reduce crosstalk, which could be a benefit on especially long runs of cable.
