Folks, I've looked all over the 'net without finding a good answer. There still, after all these years, seems to be a lot of confusion.
I am putting a DB9 RS232 connector on a board. It will be driven from a PC (as host).
My question is WHICH gender for the connector and which pins for Rx and Tx. And, are these Rx with respect to the host (or remote device), etc?
