  1. Connect one end of a null modem serial cable to the AP-5131s serial connector. Attach the other end of the null modem serial cable to the serial port of a PC running HyperTerminal or a similar emulation program.
  2. Set the HyperTerminal program to use 19200 baud, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, no parity, no flow control and auto-detect for terminal emulation.
  3. Press <ESC> or <Enter> to access the AP-5131 CLI. A serial connection has now been established and the user should be able to view the serial connection window.
