Failed to access TurboIron 24x switch via console

Hello all,


I just got a TurboIron 24x switch. I want to configure it through the serial connection. The problem is that when I try to connect to it using a RS232 to USB converter it doesn't connect. It only gives me a blank screen. I have tried pressing return key for many times but no luck. Also I have tried it on both Linux/Windows platforms. It shows on both platforms that it is connected (ttyUSB0 in Linux & COM3 in Windows 7). Does anybody have a clue about it?. Does brocade has any special serial cable for it switches ?. Kindly reply as I have wasted much time on this.
