I have tried Hyperterminal, and I get part way.

I set the Com 1 port (since I am using the "real serial cable" to 
19200 baud, and 8-N-1 with no flow control.

At step 3, I get nothing back when I type anything.  And I don't think 
I should since there is no "wrap" plug on the cable connecting "data 
out" back to "data in" or TxD to RxD, if you prefer.

I tried steps 4 and 5, and nothing happens.
