(OP)
I have a palm pilot IIIxe. I wonder if it´s possible to use my palm when configuring switches/routers using the console port.
Can I connect a serial cable to my palm? if yes, where can I find one?
Which is the best telnet application for palm pilots out there? I must be able to run vt-100 and ansi with it.

RE: serial cable

CAN ANYONE HELP.. I WOULD LIKE TO MAKE  A SERIAL CABLE FOR MY PALM VX TO USE TO COMMUNICATE WITH A STANDARD SERIAL DEVICE... CIRCUITS WOULD BE GREAT. GAZ.

RE: serial cable

Wouldn't it be easier to use the Palm's built in IR transmitter, and buy a IR control that you plug into your serial port?

RE: serial cable

No, it would be easier to wire directly into the serial port. I've been scouring the net as well for the same connection on a handspring visor. They use the DTR and RTS lines to get RS232 voltage levels, although I'm not sure how this provides a positive voltage when both are at -11. Still only a couple of hours into research though. I'm also curious about the TxD(PC) and RxD(Visor) tying them directly together might cause some kind of overvoltage and that scares me.
