I spoke to Connectix about this a few months ago. If you get a standard
db25 male to female cable, it should work just fine. I believe they said
there is a limit on the length of the cable, though, of about 15 feet.
Don't forget, you will also need an extension cable for the POWER cord going
to the keyboard port.
