How to use external KVM with HP rx 6600

Dear,

I am now using two HP rx6600 servers (installed in a rack). I have also to use an external KVM + switcher to switch between the servers. I should connect a AUATC Convertor between the switcher and the server. But I don't find on the server a port to connect the convertor. The console port on it is a "male port", whereas I need a female one. There is a MP LAN port on the server, but I don't know if I can use it like serial port or not. From now, I don't know what to do and waiting for assistance.
Thanks

The HP Integrity rx6600's integrated Management Processor Card provides six methods for
console connections.

-SSL secured Web console accessible through the 10/100Base T management LAN
-Standard telnet connections accessible through the 10/100Base T management LAN

-Local VT100 or hpterm terminal, or VT100 or hpterm emulator via local RS 232 serial
connection

-Remote VT100 or hpterm terminal, or VT100 or hpterm emulator via external modem

-VGA graphics console using the upgrade to the VGA port. This upgrade is required for

-Windows systems and optional for HP UX and Linux systems. Keyboard and mouse
connections are provided by USB. OpenVMS doesn't support VGA console for boot
operations, but supports the VGA device for graphics use after boot.

-Integrated Remote Console (virtual KVM) through the iLO 2 Advanced Pack (Windows
systems only)********

And so you can use the Serial Port on the MP LAN.
