      Mmm, probably not. A commercial serial lead is likely to have all 9
      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.
