Thanks a lot for all this! The cable halves that I have
are marked either "12966-60015 ASYNC DATA STRAPPED FOR 9600 BAUD"
or "12966-60008 ASYNC DATA". Fortunately, the numbering in the
back of the card edge connector corresponds to the 1-24 (top, left
to right) and A-Z,AA-BB (bottom, left to right) numbering. The 60015
option has quite a few more cross-connects than the 60004 option.
Looks like the labeling of TD and RD signals in your docs
indicate that the card thinks of itself as DTE, and the cable
that you describe is actually a null modem-like cable w/o
handshake. All this should be enough for me to build a simple
cable and test this over the weekend.
