Cannot establish console session to Avaya P333T

I have a stack of four Avaya P333T cajun switches.    For quite some time, I have been unable to establish any kind of console session.   I've tried  telnet, http, and serial.    Nothing works.    The switch's are "switching" just fine, but I know the day is coming when I'll have to get on and make some changes.

I've tried several of the blue "Cisco" rollover cables, but I get no response.   After verifying 9600 baud, 8 bits, no parity, 1 stop bit, no flow control, I eventually tried a few other baud rates (hoping to get some kind of garbage output on the screen) but I get nothing.   I've also tried using multiple machines for the console session in case the problem was with the local serial interface.

Any ideas?     Also... the blue Cisco console cable should work, shouldn't it?

In the quick start guide it references a "special" supplied RJ45 cable connected to the console port.

There is an alternate way to telnet by assigning your laptop a static IP address on the same subnet as the Cajun switches.
