Hello,  I need to access my Sonicwall 1260 pro enhanced via the Console port.

I've found the settings for the null modem in other user solutions posted here, 9600 baud, 8,n,n, when I connect an RJ45 to DB9 connector from the Sonicwall to a PC, hyperterminal says it's connected  to the firewall, but never responds to any prompt or query.   Is the sonicwall really connected properly to the PC ???

If so, I am not sending the proper hyperteminal login or query to the device to evoke a login prompt ???

Unfortuneatly, the 1260 does not allow settings to be backed up, only firware, otherwise I would simply reset and rebuild the configuration.   Safemode also does not allow recovery of settings, only a usable versions of the fireware/os.
