85097A eCal Interface Module Cabling Questions

I found a new surplus 85097-60002 PC Interface Module that I would like to use to connect my 85092C eCal module to my 8753E VNA. The module came without a power supply or any cables, so here are my questions:

1) The 85097A User's Guide (the best documentation I can find) specifies a 24VDC/1A power supply. What is the pinout of the mini-DIN 8 power connector on the module?

2) Will "straight through" DB-25 cables work for all three connector positions (the two eCal interface connectors and the VNA interface)? Could I use standard "computer grade" cables for these?

3) Although the diagram on the module shows it hooked up to a PC, is this the same module as in the 85097B kit that can be connected directly to the parallel interface of the 8753E ?
