    I got a serial cable and a usb-serial converter for kernel debugging.
    (My target has a serial port and my host only usb).

    I learnt I got the wrong cable, and I need a null modem cable. Now, I would like to know which option would work for me.

    1. Is it possible for me to convert the serial cable to a null modem cable. (it has female pins at both ends ).

    2. Once I have a null modem cable, do I need a different converter as well or would the same usb-serial converter suffice?.

    I would be very grateful if you could answer these for me.


    PS: Both host and target are windows 7 64 bit. Neither processors have VT-X. Neither have firewire ports.
