ERROR FIXEDRTS/CTS discussion sounds weird, and I believe it"s actually wrong. RTS is asserted when the DTE is ready to _SEND_ (not receive, as is stated), and the DCE responds by raising CTS if it is ready to receive. APPROVED

2016-03-22 18:07:17rev. 9ERROR FIXEDIt is graphicly correct, but it looks like you only swapped where it should be swapped but neglected to reflect the swap in your pin numbers. I was getting ready to solder according to the pin numbers and it shows pin 3 to pin 3,which would send the transmit wire of one computer into the transmit out of the other. Well let me know if i'm missing something.DanAPPROVED
