This was deduced from two X.21 cables hooked back to back. For DCE side I had to add 2 extra wires (Pins 25,26) not used in X.21, and swapped most pin pairs. I currently use this cable between a Cisco 2520 and a Cisco 1601 at 1.5 Mb/sec.

Can be manufactured from a pair of Cisco X.21 cables. You may have to modify the DB60 end of one of them if both are the same DxE type.

The DCE end (MODE_DCE not grounded) needs to supply the clock, and shows in show controllers as DCE V.11 (X.21), clock rate 2000000 or similar.

The DTE end (MODE_DCE grounded) shows in show controllers as DTE V.11 (X.21) TX and RX clocks detected or similar.
