Re: [gpsstash] PS2 connector pin outs and voltages???
The PS/2 port does supply power. I believe it is 12VDC, at a reasonably high current (a few hundred milliamperes). I've used a parallel port NIC and also a small ethernet hub that could both be run from a power cord connected to the PS/2 port. I couldn't find the cord, so I can't test the pin-out or the voltage.
