A communication utility included in Microsoft Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows NT, and Windows 2000 that provides terminal access to remote computers using a modem.
You can use HyperTerminal to send and receive files between your computer and a remote computer over a modem and to connect to remote computer bulletin board systems.
If you want to access files and printers on a remote computer running Windows over a modem, use Dial-Up Networking instead of HyperTerminal. (With Windows 2000, use Network and Dial-up Connections.)
Network administrators can also use HyperTerminal to remotely connect to routers, switches, and other devices that support VT100 terminal emulation, and enter text commands for configuring the device.
