Access C240 from serial port 1 or 2

Hello All,
How can I access my Visualize C240 from the serial port on the back of the C240? There is no console port available to me on the back of the box.
Anyone know the settings or special cables needed. I was hoping to use hyper terminal to access the box. The display will not come on.

Thank You
James

Hi James,

Have a look at this thread.

http://forums11.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/questionanswer.do?threadId=1064439

Null-modem cable

Hyperterminal setup
1. Bits persecond-- 9600
2. Data Bits -- 8
3. Parity -- none
4. Stop bits -- 1
5. Flow Control -- none or Hardware

and if you don't have a serial port on your laptop have a look at this thread.
