25 pin D-SUB MALE connector pin-out & layout

25 pin D-SUB MALE connector  at the DTE (Computer)

RS366 interface describes the “Interface Between Data Terminal Equipment and Automatic Calling Equipment for Data Communication.” To tell that in a normal language is almost impossible. There are situations where automatic dialing is required. Some phone companies deliver an automatic dialing unit for these situations and this interface is used to connect a DTE to these Automatic Calling Equipment (ACE).
