     I think this will do it.  I'll give it a try as soon as my RJ45/DB25 connector I ordered from Jameco gets here.  

     73 and thanks,

I did a quick search using the terms [ "serial port" RJ45 "pin out" ] on 
Google. Try this for a description:
    http://www.arcelect.com/rs232.htm

Drawback is that it may not be a standard. I went back to search a bit 
more using ["serial port" RJ45 "pin out" cisco] and found this
 http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/video/ps1870/products_administration_guide_chapter09186a008007d503.html
and
    
http://www.technick.net/public/code/cp_dpage.php?aiocp_dp=pincabser_cisco_9

These show different pinouts than the previous link. I would keep 
searching til you have a better feeling of the results. Final task would 
probably be pick one pinout and test until you find a match. You can 
also watch pins from the RJ45 unit and watch for data being transmitted 
using an AC volt meter. Be sure to identify the ground pin before 
starting. This could give you a starting point.
