Thanks, I am slowly finding stuff. Before I read the replies from Lionel,
you and Der Mouse I found the doc that says what you said here:

Yeah glad Sunshack is still working. Tons of good info there. Anyway yeah,
looks like the db9 to rj45 converter or cable is the way to go. Actually
the converter is pretty nice because I could leave it on a PC with a serial
port and then just run straight rj45/rj45 to the serial port on the
servers. Sun gives the Cisco part number that works and I found it on
several sites, just need to find a good shop that will ship internationally.
