Each PC is fitted with a 9-pin female D-type connector which is connected internally to various pins on the PC motherboard. They are as follows:
This is simply connected to the ground plane on the PC motherboard.
This is connected to the pin which drives the power-on LED.
If this pin is driven high, the PC power state toggles.
If this is shorted to ground, the PC resets. This is the same as pushing the reset switch.
The connector can be connected to a cable which is sourced in the remote-control PC.
The pins have the same function and are wired as shown in the diagram. The colours refer to the colours of the wires in the cable.
