Cisco 3512 XL CNA connection

Im not going to lie, I'm pretty much a beginner when it comes to switches.  I have recently purchased a second hand 3512 XL which I have managed to connect to via PuTTY and the console cable. I have familiarised myself with access privileges and resetting passwords and locating the IP address, etc. 

I am trying to connect the switch to Cisco Network Assistant however I am unable to connect to the switch over a cat5 on the first port (nothing else is on the network, just a server directly to the switch).  I have tried pinging the switch from my server, and similarly I have tried pinging the server from the switch and each time there is 100% fail rate.  Can anyone help me trace this problem?
