Chapter 7 says use 8N1 no flow control any speed from 1200 to 115000.
Do you have the cable that came with it or are you trying to use something else? If the latter you might want to try a null modem just to see if that helps.

sometimes there is a 2524 that wan??t talk to you at the console port. After reboot all works fine again. It may have something to do with the firmware; so use the freshest one (F05.09).
If you don??t have already an DHCP in your network, i attached a freeware one for NT.
After installation (i have it on my work-station) you will have to do some simple configuration steps; close, start and let it run.
In it??s default configuration the 2524 will use DHCP to obtain an IP; watch the running
DHCP Server. After a while you should be able to telnet your switch.

I am facing the same problem. We have two HP Procurve 2524 newly installed on site, but we are unable to find the console cables shipped with the switches. There is no IP address assigned to it.
I tried to use a "roll over cable" (standard for Cisco and that works perfectly on CSS and LocalDirector's). What kind of cable should I use to access the HP ProCurve?
Any help will be very useful.

We found an HP cable, still bagged, part number 5184-1894 from one of our HP servers.
This worked using hyperterminal with 9600 / 8 / N / 1 / xon-xoff and a USB to serial adapter onto the Toshiba 35DVD laptop.

However, following advice from one the posts here I configured it via DHCP (Lucky I found this on the test bench, theres no DHCP down at the datacentre!), got in via Telnet and called a reboot. Console now works happily from both Hyperterminal and Minicom.

Cable: null modem
Bits per second: 115200
Data bits: 8
Stop bits: 1
Flow control: None
Hope that helps.

Those settings worked. I couldn't get anything using 9600 8-n-1, but 115200 with a straight through serial cable + Radioshack null modem adapter worked great.

Try this settings in windows hyperterminal.
9600 / 8 / none / 1 /Xon/Xoff
this works fine for me.

This was the only settings that worked for my 2520g-24-poe switch and when got in i changed the baudrate to 115200 and then it worked fine for me :)
console baud-rate 115200
