Maximum console cable length

Does anyone know of documentation specifying the maximum lenght for console cables? Does anyone know how to increase the cable distance beyond to normal accepted maximum?

Thanks,

Re: Maximum console cable length

There are some numbers from Cisco here: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/modules/ps2033/products_module_installation_guide_chapter09186a008007df09.html#xtocid3

These numbers are conservative by Cisco's own admission, but are good guidelines.

You can make console cables out of CAT5, for instance. You just need to know the pinouts, which the above link also covers.
