You can use any console cable that comes with any HP ProCurve switch, if some netadmin you know has and is willing to help you.

The cable is a standard DB9(F) - DB9(F) nullmodem so you can buy a cheap one from your local datastore.

Null-modem cables is a cable connecting following pins:

1---7
7---1
2---3
3---2
4-6,8
6,8-4
5---5
