Hi CSA2,

I have a 2e which is great with it's SSC comms card, but my 2GS is lacking ability to talk to the outside world in the same respect. I'd rather not have to buy a whole new SSC and a whole new set of cables, when there's a perfectly good communications adapter built right into the machine, but I cannot for the life of me find a 2GS (is that DIN-8) to DB9 connector.

The following website was no luck, mainly dead links. The ones which were live seem to not stock such a cable.

I also tried retrofloppy, but at a whopping $75 USD to ship to New Zealand, for a $19 cable, the words daylight and robbery seem appropriate here.

So does anyone know where I can purchase said cable at a reasonable rate, preferably in NZ/AUS?

Cheers,

Alistair
