Just so this don't go on for too long time, as I also don't see how
everybody can agreed on a RJ-45 serial pinout:
I plan to keep having the accessible serial port as a DB-9 connector
with the standard PC pinout. The net45xx series ARE small PC's, and
using the DB9 will simplify my life and, I believe, a majority of the
current customers.... I believe that it's still much easier to procure a
cable for that, just about any computer store stock a "DB-9 to DB-9
But if I one day decide to make a terminal server version needing higher
serial port density, I will use 8 pins RJ-45 connectors, probably with
the cyclades pinout.
