I want to know that i am purchasing a Cisco Catalyst Switch. I am going to configure it through Windows XP. All I need to know that do i need rollover cable with DB9 Connctor OR can I have Rollover cable with both ends as RJ45? Please help
If you want to have console access you need the DB9 to RJ45 - I have not seen the rollover cable with RJ45 at both ends used for console access before.
If you do not have the com port (DB9) side on your laptop/PC you will need a serial to usb converter.
Hope this helps

If you don't have a DB9 port and have only USB ports then you also need this:
