drag queen cable
Some printers, Hewlett Packard in particular present female serial interfaces, that look as if they are mimicking DCE (Data Communications Equipment) modems. However, at heart they are actually male DTE (Data Terminal Equipment) terminals mimicking the computer side of the interface. To attach a computer to such a device you need a cable with a male connector on one end and a female on the other, but with null modem-like twists. This cable at first glance looks like a standard modem cable, but inside it is perverse.
