What cable to connect Avocent CPS1610 to Cisco console port

Hi

Anyone know what type of cable is needed to connect an Avocent CPS1610 to a Cisco console port?

Avocent say its a "reversing cable" (1-8, 2-7, etc) but I've tried and it doesn't work.

Should be a roll-over cable, (i.e., 1-8, 2-7, 3-6, etc).

Make sure you set the Avocent ports correctly; 9600 baud, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, no parity or flow control.

It is set correctly (as far as I can see).

I get the following when trying to connect:

"Avocent CPS-1610 S/W Version 2.2

Connected to Port: 3 9600,8,N,1,NONE"

Then nothing else.
