    Hi everyone,

    I have two server PC's running Linux-HA which I would like to connect
    via a serial cable in order to give Heartbeat an extra channel of
    communication.

    I will be creating this cable myself, and as such I would like to know
    what the pin-out configuration details are for this setup.

    The reason im asking is that every website I have read so far
    regarding this subject seems to have a different set of details, and
    if possible I would like to get it right the first time :)

    Any information anyone can offer would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Google for 'null modem cable' with 9 pin connectors (DB-9-S).

    I tried that before, although the problem im running into is that
    there are quite a few different configurations, and I want to make
    sure I use the right one for the job.

    Thanks anyway though!
