HyperTerminal is an application you can use in order to connect your computer to other remote systems. These systems include other computers, bulletin board systems, servers, Telnet sites, and online services. However, you would need a modem, an Ethernet connection, or a null modem cable before you can use HyperTerminal.
Within HyperTerminal’s user interface, you will find menus, buttons, icons, and messages. All these elements and controls work together so as to provide convenience for the user, especially for accessing the necessary features and performing various tasks. This application is a useful tool, particularly for testing if your modem is working well and in verifying if you have a stable connection with other sites.
In order to check if your modem’s settings are configured correctly or if your modem is connected properly, you can send a set of commands through HyperTerminal and view the results given. Other functions of HyperTerminal would include the recording of data being sent to and from the service of the computer you are connected to. Through this information, you will be able to determine the stability of your connections.
In addition, communication with the user of the computer on the other side of the remote connection is made possible through the scroll feature of HyperTerminal. This is a feature that allows you to receive and view texts on the screen as well as the capability to send your own text messages. Another notable feature of HyperTerminal is its option that enables you to transfer files from your desktop PC onto a portable device such as a laptop computer via a serial port.
Furthermore, you will be able to start using the functions provided by HyperTerminal once a new connection has been configured. To do this, you need to initially open the Hyperterminal and enter the information about your location. You will indicate this on the Location Information dialog box. Next, you need to click on the New Connection item found on the File menu. Then, enter the appropriate name of the connection inside the name box and select the suitable icon for it. After doing so, click OK. Choose the modem you want to utilize inside the Connect to dialog box afterwards.
If you’re using a modem, enter the phone number you wish to call. Thus, if you are going to connect using TCP/IP, you can then enter the host address and port number. Finally, once you click on the Dial button, you can just wait until the computer answers your call.
