That’s not VGA! That’s a serial (DB9) to console (RJ45) adapter, usually used to connect to routers and switches. Quite useful! I have several and used to carry them around all the time to connect to Cisco gear and such. Not as useful anymore now that laptops don’t have serial ports. Different pinout than Ethernet, too.
