Have you tried to connect to it with EASy68K and the Dumbterm program?

RS232 interfacing can be difficult.

Make sure you know the RX and TX pins on your connectors. Use a scope, check it, and confirm baud rates. Ideally have code that can send a continuous stream of characters. 'U' being a particularly good pattern.

Know your cables, understand the connectors on both ends, if the cable is straight-through, or cross-over. Understand if your gender-changer or null-modem adapters is straight-through, or cross-over.

Check if you need flow control (CTS/RTS or DTR/DSR) at either end.

In the late 80's we had a device called an Interfaker that allow signals to be probed and patched, because every manufacturer had their own connectors, quirks, and implementations of serial interfaces.
