Make your own Cisco Rollover Cable

In a pinch, you can make your own Cisco Rollover Cable.  Or, if you want a longer cable so you aren’t holding your laptop in weird ways while standing in front of a rack of routers.  Great for labs as well.

Cisco Rolled Cable

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.
