The standard is a straight through cable for things that are supposed to be connected together (e.g. computer to a switch or hub) and cross-overs to things being directly connected together that would normally go through something else (e.g. computers directly together). I wouldn't expect any device to "expect" the wrong type of cable according to the *usual* ways of cabling things. Quite a few things will automatically accommodate using the wrong cable, but I wouldn't expect that sort of behaviour. -- [[email protected] ~]$ uname -ipr 18.104.22.168-10.fc7 i686 i386 Using FC 4, 5, 6 & 7, plus CentOS 5.
