Hi,

The null-modem cable needs to plug onto a 9-pin D connector (RS232) not a 15-way of the same size.So it would't have fitted anyway.

Have you got any 9-pin D connectors on the PC?

If not, you may have a 25-pin male D connector on there,
in which case you'll need an adapter.

If there are no serial ports at all then a USB to RS232 adapter is needed,
or even better a serial port card.
