Thank you all for the timely help provide, I am summarizing the solution and 
some recommendations. Hope this helps others :)

Solutions that worked:

Use a simple Null modem cable, No full-handshake - Remco

You should try flow control set to xon/xoff - Chris

If you're using a laptop, you might even want to try a different laptop to 
make the console connection.  I had the same problem last week and couldn't 
get it to work until I had switched to a different laptop. - Tom

Other Recommendations

I use TeraTerm Pro rather than Hyperterm.  - Anthony & Eric

Perhaps you would benefit from using TuTTy. It's the PuTTy ssh client
with serial support. - Jarco

Try setting hardware flow control on. - Michael
