Was that a DA15 connector?

DE9: used for "modern" serial ports, CGA, MDA, etc.

DE15: aka HD15, same shell as DE9, but with 3 rows of pins, used for
common VGA

DA15: used for PC joystick, some network card, some Apple monitors

DB25: used for "old-style" (REAL) serial ports, also for PC parallel port,
and some SCSI ports

DB9: commonly misused for DE9. VALID use is for common implementation of
RS232 using a DB25 connector with only pins 1 through 8 and 20.
