We use Extreme products, but use telnet or SSH behind firewall.

Can you use telnet? It provide more flexibility, but SSH is more secure

Regardless of the connection the CLI configuration is the same.

HyperTerminal setting?

Baud rate-9600
Data bits-8
Stop bit-1
Flow control-XON/XOFF

Cable: Null-Modem RS-232 (9 pin to 25 pin)

Good luck!
