    That connector was the deal breaker for me otherwise I would have already had one!
    I was going to make my own m12 6 pin to rj45 and another cord just to hardwire it to vehicle but I didn't have any luck finding that m12 6 pin either. Just not worth the effort in my opinion.

    Maybe some forum member can make up some cords for those interested when its all figured out. (for a price of course)

    After thinking about it some more, I ordered the Ebay one, and will go the route that @xyvyx suggested.

    Based on the above pinout, Anyone know the correct order that 1-2 & 4-5 should connect to a keystone for the Ethernet?

    Thanks.

    1. White/Orange = TX +
    2. Orange = TX -
    4. White/Green = RX +
    5. Green = RX -

    the Pin numbers are the same regardless.. it's just the wire color that changes:
    Industrial Ethernet Book


    On a somewhat related note (I may post this elsewhere if I tackle this tonight..), I'm about to attempt to repair the ethernet wiring on a 5231 camera that a squirrel chewed through. After cutting it open, I found 6 wires of totally unrelated colors. So I'm probably going to do a similar thing of running the cable into a tiny box w/ a keystone connector.

    Can it use an SD card? Sounds like no.

    The specs say yes... This is more likely designed for a bus...
