Connecting from Standard Horizon GX2200

I am attempting to input GPS and AIS data from a Standard Horizon GX2200. I have tried connecting the gray and brown wires from the GX 2200 to the brown and yellow wires connected to a 9 pin serial port. I have then tried to plug in the serial port directly (Com Port 1) and also used a USB to serial connection and used the Prolific driver to set up that port. The computer is an older Panasonic Tough Book running Windows 7.

I have changed the GX2200 baud rate to 38400 and also get up the GPS to send all sentences.
The connection panel in openCPN seems to be using the correct settings but I have not been able to connect. There is nothing in the NMEA debug window.

Has anyone made a similar connection and, if so, do you have any thoughts as to what I need to add or change?
