Null-Modem emulation

What is Null Modem cable?

Null Modem cable is regularly called a crossover cable . It is utilized to permit two serial Data Terminal Equipment (DTE) gadgets to speak with each other without utilizing a modem or a Data Communications Equipment (DCE) gadget in the middle. For this to happen, the Transmit (TXD) stick of one gadget should be associated with the Receive (RXD) stick of the other gadget. To empower handshaking between the two gadgets, the Request to Send (RTS) stick of one gadget must be associated with the Clear to Send (CTS) stick of the other gadget. Since these pins are "crossed" on the two link terminals, the name crossover cable is utilized.
