EIA-530 Serial Cable

I don't have a fast connection right now, so I

came up with this idea. I am a newbie CCNA,

and I would like to connect a 56K modem to my

serial port and practice my DDR. I found this

EIA-530 Serial Cable on the cisco site, which

seems to be what I'll need. I'm currently

using a C-2514, v.12.0 IOS

My question is for when I would hook that

cable to my router.

Could I connect a DB25/DB9 adapter on the end

of the cable, in order to utilize a 56K

external modem and connect through PAP?

Has anyone tried this?

I would like to know it will work, before I

get the cable. I can't seem to locate any

kits to make the conversions from the pinout

information online, as I do have DCE/DTE

cables already.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Bruce Davis, CCNA since 2003
