Com port problems w/Cisco router

By rhp52 ·
O/S- Win2000. I have a Cisco 2501 hooked up to a serial port using the console output from the router and using hyperterminal to make connection. When I try to open the connection I get "unable to open Com1-check you port settings" I have checked and re-checked and everything seems to be OK. I have used the router on other O/S's and worked fine. Any help would be appreciated
Thanks

remember to have your settings at
9600bps
8 data bits
non partiy
1 stop bit
no flow control
this is standard for all cisco devices..
make sure that you are using a console cable
(Role over Cable)this is the wiring
12345678 input /output
87654321 output / input
hope this helps
