Male to Female Connection
I am trying to run CAT5 cable from a male connection (plugging into the front of a patch panel) to a female connection (patching to the back of a patch panel). I am a little unsure what wiring scheme to run on each for this to be successful. Any insight?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

As long as each end of each cable is done the same it doesn’t matter.

To be clear both ends of the patch cable have to be the same schema, and both ends of the cable in the wall/rack needs to be the same. But the patch cable can be a different schema from the wall/rack cable.

It is most common to use the same schema for everything when you are wiring stuff up to make the troubleshooting easier.

****************
most patch panels have a color guide for the punches. If it is not there, and you know the mfg/model of the patchpanel, search the mfg site for information. Otherwise, punch it and then connect a tester to check the wiremap. It may take some time to sort through if the mappings are wrong, but your tester will identifiy which pairs are correct.
