Hi!

If you plan to use Telnet or SSH to your other machine and you will be using windows OS, I recommend you install PuTTy. PuTTy is a telnet and ssh client and is used now-a-days than hyperterminal.

I hope I gave you a solution to what you are seeking.

Regards!

Hello Marie,

Check this out. I found these,

“Putty” it is developing originally for the Windows platform.

Putty is free software and also available with source code and is developed and supported by a group of unpaid assistant.

It will be more efficient to you.

And others are,

  • Real term
  • Tera term
  • Absolute telnet

You can download putty here.

Thank you.

If your computer’s HyperTerminal is no longer working, try these alternatives. First option is the Windows Remote Shell command line. It is available on Windows 7, Windows 8.x, and Windows 10. To explore the different options available on Windows Remote Shell, run the following command in the command prompt:

winrs /?

The Windows Remote Shell or the WINRS command is basically an SSH replacement which allows remote command line access over an encrypted connection. It uses the SOAP protocol. Second option is HTPE or HyperTerminal Private Edition. This one is not free software. This is a commercial terminal emulation program that allows you to communicate with serial COM ports, TCP/IP networks, and dial-up modems.

If you need one good HyperTerminal program, you can try this one out. HyperTerminal Private Edition costs $64.99. It supports Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8.x, and Windows 10. Tera Term is another option. It is an open-source terminal emulator and SSH module that supports the following:

  • IPv6
  • SSH1
  • SSH2
  • Telnet
  • Serial ports
  • File transfer protocols (XMODEM, Kermit, ZMODEM, B-PLUS, and others)
