                        ==== Original Query ====

        Does anyone have a source of V.35 to RS-442 ( aka RS-449 ) cables ?

        I recently purchased a Sun HSi board to use with some 56K lines
        that I am playing around with, but I am having problems finding
        a cable to attach the DSU/CSU to the HSi patch panel.

        The problem is the cable that I require is a V.35 to RS-442 (
        aka RS-449 ), and no one seems to make that as a stock item or
        even have any idea if it is possible to create such a cable.

        For clarifications sake, the V.35 is on the DSU/CSU and the
        RS-442(9) female socket is on the HSi patch panel.

        If anyone knows of a source for these cables in Canada/US (
        preferably the former ) would you *please* send the contact
        info along ?

                        ===== Summary ====

Well there are a variety of sources ( most originating in the U.S ). I finally
went with the Black Box solution which looks like a modem ( albeit a cheapy
one ), however looks can be deceiving as the thing works like a charm.

The only thing I had to do was configure the V.35 and RS-422 ports to be
DCE and DTE via jumpers on the board.

There once was a girl named Irene
Who lived on distilled kerosene
        But she started absorbin'
        A new hydrocarbon
And since then has never benzene.
