Im wondering how (or where) to connect the screen of an RS485 network cable given the following system:

1) Master PC has a network converter plugged into a spare serial port. The PC acts as the network master.

2) Each networked device has it's own 24V PSU.

Where do i connect the screen ? (at the PC Gnd on the network converter and no where else ?)

Moreover, with your answer, explain why you would connect it where you think.
