Perhaps you have seen my messages on starting up a sparc2. I am a sun newbie....

Should the mini din8 cable to the keyboard be straight thru or have some pins crossed over?

I opened up the type5 keyboard I have connected (sparc2 does not ID the keyboard...) and checked the 74LS06 chip where the rx-tx should be coming thru and I feel the chip heating up...abnormaly...

Something tells me my cable to the keyboard may have the wrong config...Its not an original SUN one...

I found the pinout for the keyboard but what about the connector at the sparc2 end...???
