PowerBook as a serial console

A question about using a powerbook as a serial console was forwarded around recently. I thought I would share my solution(which happened to be suggested by more than one person).

 

I have been using a "Keyspan High Speed USB Serial Adapter":http://www.keyspan.com/products/usb/usa19hs/ a db9 -> RJ45 adapter, a rollover cable and ckermit
This solution has worked without a hitch for devices with RJ45 serial management ports. Adding a additional RJ45 to DB9 and RJ45 to DB25 rounds out the connectors for basically everything else.

 

Another recommendation from someone using the same hardware is Zterm.

And now off to sleep.
