What is the proper pinout for a Cat6 crossover cable?

Believe it or not that is a trick question because it does not depend on the category listing of the cable but relies on the type of service you are using as category 6 cable is suitable for Token Ring, 10BaseT, 100BaseT, 100Baset4 and 1000BaseT, each requiring their own cross over cable. Here is a link to the various cross over cable types, you can pick which one from the list:
