Need Help 4100 Silkworm

I am trying to access the fiber switch and it stops after port initialization on bootup. I thought it might be the switch but I am getting the same thing on another switch. Anybody have any ideas what I could be doing wrong? I am accessing it via a serial cable. I believe it is a straight thru serial cable. It seems like I cannot use the keyboard at all. Emulation type is VT100. I have the terminal session configured as recommended. 9600, 8, 1, none none.

Please use the original Brocade serial cable to connect to the switch.

I had every time trouble if I am not using the original cables. But to be honest, I am not sure if a straight thru cable will work.
