Connect VPN3005 console to 2509 term server

I need to manage a 3005 out-of-band via a 2509. Anyone know what DB9 adapter to use on the 2509 octal RJ45 cable?

Use the DB9 adapter that comes with Cisco routers marked "Terminal".

Cris - that's the first thing I tried - no go. I suspect I need some sort of cross-over to make this work. I'll try a couple of "Terminal" adapters with/without a rolled cable between the two. Remember that the 2509 has a special octal octopus cable as it is called with 8 RJ45s. Works great for standard RJ45 console ports, but not with the DB9 console port on the VPN3005.
