wires wired straight-through (pin1 to pin1, pin2 to pin2, etc), and a
null modem adapter is likely to be crossed over to it's other side, not
looped back to itself. It would be best to check with a meter, thou'.
Maybe it might be easier just to build yourself a serial lead wired up
the way you want it, instead of having to rely on a commercial one
being wired up the right way. It's only a couple of sockets with a bit
of shielded wire in between - I made one up with balanced audio cable
as that's what I had to hand at the time. That way you can connect the
socket for the PC end up with it's own local loopback.
