most modern pc's use 9pin serial connectors...however some of the older at style motherboards that I have run accross have the 25 pin serial connector.....you'll just need to look on the back of the computer you want to link to....the amigas serial is a 25 pin.....peace

Im using a laptop to link up...i think it's 9 pin so that would make it a 9-25 cable correct?

If you go to a 'warehouse' type place or computer fair you can usually pick up a null modem cable like I have, which is 9-pin AND 25-pin on both ends. Useful

Don't go for very long cables, too. Stay under 20 metres in length, even 15 metres for that matter.

I have a 5 metre cable- just long enough so that I can connect my Amiga and PC without reorganising the furniture in my room! Eg: my bed and my desk!
