The twinax tester is only good for testing whether the WSC is transmitting 
signal to the connection being tested.  May I suggest calling Black Box for 
an offline twinax tester?  That way you can test the cable before plugging 
it in to the WSC.  If somebody's going to make/maintain their own cables, 
it's well worth the money!  They also sell a kit for cutting the ends that 
saves a bundle of time...  I've used both these things in a prior life, and 
was able to make over 150 working cables in one night (during a cutover). I 
can't recommend them highly enough.
