Yeah, they are cheap: I've got three of them. The problem with the SS5 is
that it doesn't have the usual DB15-S AUI port. Instead its got a weird
thing called a "Mini-26", basically a high density 26-socket connector with what
looks like quarter-turn locks on either side. sunsolve.sun.com
lists a "misc. network cable" matching this configuration: sun PN
530-2021. Another Sun-exclusive I guess ...
