My notes about connecting to a WRAP board:

Use a "null-modem" cable. Radio Shack didn't have this, so I ended up 
buying a straight-through RS-232 cable (26-125B) and a Null Modem 
Adapter (26-264B). Don't use a cable that came with a UPS.

Hyperterminal settings: VT100 emulation; 38400 bps; 8 Data bits; Parity 
none; stop bits 1; flow control None.
