I have build this cable: http://www.marty44.net/sgihard.html
I think it should also work for the Indigo.
I hear it's the same mini-DIN serial "standard" used on old
Macintosh systems. I have a couple "Mac modem cables" on loan from a
friend, so I'll know soon if they work on my R4400 Indy.
It is, I'm using a Powerbook 190 as a console for my Challenge S, with a
standard Imagewriter II cable.
You don't want a Mac Modem cable, but rather either a Netopia Console
cable (For the Farallon Netopia routers, which also use the RS422 DIN-8
connector) or a Newton PC Sync cable. The Mac Modem cables have the
wrong gender connector (Unless they're DIN-8 to DIN-8 cables)
