The physical cable used with HP line analysers is a simple Y-split -
25-position ribbon cable, two DB25F and one DB25M (or the other way
round... can't quite remember). You can wedge the cable between two
devices, then attach the free end to the HP pod (or just plug a DB25
cable right from one unit direct to the pod if you are using the HP to
originate or consume bits)
What I'm not sure of is if the HP pod has anything special in the way
of drivers/receivers to keep from loading the line as it monitors
things. I could open up a pod and see what's inside...
