How to add second serial port in ThinkCentre M58p (6209)? On motherboard is socket described COM2, but it have 11 pins. All extension panel have only 9 pin... For example: http://static.frazpc.pl/board/2008/01/120136493129
It's ok. Look at http://www.frontx.com/pro/cpx102_2.html. There are two variants of motherboard socket. You must check pin assignment.

No, I can't find any manual for this PC (m58p 6209) with description of this pins.
It's only one way to avoid the damage of serial port on the motherboard except the use of original part. Unfortunately, the manufacturers are using different standards. The 9-pin connector is used in most cases, but pin configuration may differs.
