I'm trying to reset my Compaq KVM (EO1004B) using a serial connection, but I can't actually get the connection working.  It appears to connect, but only gives me a blank terminal window with a blinking cursor.

Can someone help me reset it?  I forgot my password for the Screen Saver and need to reset it.

T.I.A.

Hey, thanks for that...  I have gone there before, but it doesn't really help much.  I think my Serial Cable is working, but I can only connect and get a blank screen with a flashing cursor...

Portable, direct connect server access

The ATEN CV211 connects a laptop directly to any server allowing you instant access to perform data maintenance and local operations, for quick troubleshooting, updating, service and repair.

Tried that, and it doesn't connect, gives parameter error.  Also I tried using the COM port to connect to my Cisco stuff and it works fine.  Could it be the cable?  I also tried connecting from different machines and still same issue.  I'm using a straight-through Female-to-Female Serial Cable with a Male-to-Male converter...  Could this be the issue?  As I'm starting to think that this gender converter is not a straight-through converter.  I'll try pick up a straight-through "extension" cable with Female-to-Male.  Will that work maybe?

It's either bad cable ,corrupt software or bad KVM.
