Cash Drawer Wiring

Hi I have a number of Epson TM-U950 receipt printers which have RJ11 Drawer Kick (DK) connectors. I am trying to connect these to cash drawers recycled from old Sharp ER-1772s cash registers.
The cash drawers have two, two wire IDC connectors comming from them. One IDC connector has an orange and white wire, which come from a solenoid in the cash drawer. The other IDC connector has a red and white wire, which come from a micro-switch in the cash drawer. The micro-switch has no other wires.
I suspect the orange/white are ground/+24v and the red/white pair are simply open/close circuit to give the open/close state of the till drawer.
The Epson pinout for the RJ11 suggests: 1 = Not Connected, 2 = CD1, 3 = +24v, 4 = +24v, 5 = CD2 and 6 = Ground.
I would appreciate it if a tech savvy person could tell me which cash draw wires need to go to which pins on the RJ11 connector.
I can deal with the software for making the Epson trigger the drawer kick.
