I'm trying to console into a stack of Dell powerconnects.  It looks like the IP I have to manage the stack in incorrect and I need to get in and verify it.  I'm trying to console in but all I'm getting on Hyperterminal and Putty is a rotating line in the top left corner of the windows.  I have hyperterminal set per the instructions in the documentation.  But its still not displaying anything but that rotating line.  When I unplug the cable the rotating line stops so I know its at least trying to communicate to it.  I believe I'm using the correct cable type but not 100%.  Each end is 9 pin serial.

Set the data rate to 9600 baud.
c Set the data format to 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, and no parity.
d Set flow control to none.
e Under Properties, select VT100 for Emulation mode.
f Select Terminal keys for Function, Arrow, and Ctrl keys. Make
sure the setting is for Terminal keys, not Windows keys.

Use putty. Select Serial, and enter the correct COM ports that your cable is using. This should be enough to access it.

If you are still getting a rotating line, can you verify that the switch is operational?
