HP CAT5 0x1x8 KVM Server Console Switch(336044-B21)

I recently purchsed this switch from a broker and cannot access the 9-pin serial port on the rear panel of the KVM Console Switch. I contacted the broker who, in turn, contacted his supplier and the supplier replied thusly, "These do not access through the terminal. The cable is for upgrading the flash only I believe. They can double check in the manual but the terminal is used only for the higher end IP KVM's."
If that is the case, then how can the LAN port be configured for remote management? What is the point of having a LAN port on the rear panel if it cannot be configured with an IP address from which one can effect remote management? Does anyone know the correct com setup to access the 9-pin serial port? I thought it was 9600,8,N,1,P with no H/W handshaking. Or is it as the broker' supplier says, "it can't be done."

Thanks,

Mike R.

I can't comment on the serial port connection but you may be able to connect to the LAN interface if you know the MAC address of the LAN port?
