Just some random geek p0rn for you guys out there.
I was recently talking to a gentleman who came by and purchased some excess Cisco gear for his CCNA/CCNP studies. I got on the topic of he didn’t need the special cisco cable if he had serial to ethernet adaptors. Basically a Cisco rolled cable is just a cable with the ends flipped.
As you can see the order is just reversed on one side.
