Cable type to connect console port (switch) to terminal server

Answered Question
Jun 24th, 2009

Folks, just to confirm:

If my production 3750 switch is 90 ft. away and I need to connect via console to terminal server port, is that a regular *crossover* cable connected to DB-9 adapter going to work?

What's the connection off the async? It needs to be rolled somewhere along the line. You can connect (female-female RJ45) a rolled cable to a straight thru for extending it.
