Cisco Router C4500

I just got this router from craiglist, the owner do not remember the password. Now I would like to do a password recovery, but I know I need to do it via the console,

This routers have a db 25 female conector, I got a Db25 female conetor with RJ45, Since the router and my conector are female, I got a male to male converter, I conect the male to male converter to the router and then my db25 female to rj45/ plug a regular Console cable( the same I use for all others routers) I can not console ot it, I also change my setting to have 2 stops bit, had changed speed. And nothing!!!

Also If I disconnect the db25 female and conected to the AUX male port I can see the IOS, but is asking for a password.

Can someone give me an idea how to proceed, please

Thanks in advance to all of you.
