Correct serial cable pinout to connect printer to pc COM port

Hi all, I have a pc connected to a printer using a serial db9, 9 pins cable.

What is the pinout to ensure correct communication?

It should be standard RS232 - a few more obscure POS printers have specific pinouts but otherwise same as any other COM port connection.  If you're using a 9-25 pin adaptor anywhere in the connection make sure it isn't designed for a different function.
