    I just bought a Cisco etherswitch 1200 switch with 25 10baseT ports, 2
    10/100 uplinks, 1 aui and a com port on the back. I need to know how to
    comunicate with it so i can configure the switch for my network. If anyone
    Has a Idea as to how I can do this please let me know.

    I'm not familar with that particular model, but quite likely what
    you need is a serial connection at 9600 baud into the com port.
    I suspect a "straight-through" cable would be appropriate.

    For some of the operations, you might also need a terminal program
    capable of generating a BREAK signal. Not all versions of HyperTerm
    are able to do that. You might want to look for Kermit
    (literally decades of experience and development behind it) or
    TerraTerm Pro (well respected, free.)

    Wrong serial port. You are talking your built-in modem.

    Not necessarily. It could be that he just has wrong cable.

    To OP: search groups.google.com, there's been a lot of posts on that
    talk about such behaviour from old cisco switches and wrong cable.

    Just my 0.02.
