About the cables any local distributor shuld be able to find you the cables you need, they also sell kits so you could form the cables but they are to many cables, better find them.

About the serial cables i haven seen anny comercaial for sun there must be and your local distributor shuld be able to get one, but you can make one very easely, port A is like a normal serial conector of a db-25, a simple configuration of a is connecting pin 2 to 3 and 3 to 2 and 7 to 7 if you are going to connect it to another computer and 2-2, 3-3, 7-7 if you are going to connect it to a modem, you only have to wory about port B, you cand find information to detail in the answerbook of sun, if you dont have sun's answerbook ask for it, in ther area of modems and serial devices it explains wich are the signals.

about which is a serial and which is a modem port both are what you want, you only have to configure which is which, you can do it by hand with ther SAF (service accses facility) but better use
admintool in the port configuration area. i it should be in /usr/bin/admintool

good luck with your cables.
