using HyperTerm to SAN Switch Storageworks 2/8 EL

Hi
I have a spare SAN Switch 2/8 El that hasn't been used for a little while and forgot what the IP address is. I'm trying to connect to it using Hyperterm as per the config in the 2/8EL manual but my hyperterm comes blank..
Any suggestions ?
Is there any other ways to reset the IP to the default one if you can connect to it.

Thanks.

LJ,
did you use the cable that came with the switch?

Yes, I was using the cable that came with the switch. It's sort of like a flat greyish cable with rj12 on each end and also the converter to the serial port. Do you think the cable is faulty ?

changed to a different serial cable. I can now logon via HyperTerm - OK.
Thanks.

should be a normal null-modem cable...
