This cable is used to connect a DB-25 DTE port to a DE-9 DTE port using some non-standard adapters.

This cable uses the Sun pinout, with a minor modification: the two GND wires are connected straight through. With DE-9<->8P8C modular jacks, you cannot connect the DE-9 GND to both GND pins of the 8P8C end (i.e., you can't stick two pins in one hole). Connecting using a standard rollover is fine when connecting e.g. the Netra to a DE-9, but if two DE-9s are connected via a standard rollover, GND will be an open circuit. The "almost" rollover connects the two GND lines straight through to avoid this problem. The module jacks we have now use 8P8C pin 4 for GND.

The two cables we have with this pinout are labeled "Serial 87645321".
