We have a Force10 S50 Device which needs a cable

:
Pin 1 = NC
Pin 2 = NC
Pin 3 = RXD
Pin 4 = GND
Pin 5 = GND
Pin 6 = TXD
Pin 7 = NC
Pin 8 = NC

is this the same withc standart cisco DB9 RJ45 cable or is there any way to change pin detects on server to use cisco console cable for this device

I don't have any way to test this, but it looks like using a DB9-RJ45 converter and a straight through cable should do the trick.

I see that and we already requested one from the net but it will take a long to get it so we are looking for a software which create cross between rxd and txd on port

You don't need software to chnage the location of tx and rx, just use a DB9 null modem adapter, available at most electronic stores, like radio shack.
