    Default HyperTerminal Alternative in Windows Vista

    HyperTerminal is no longer part of Windows. There are several options you can use to replace its functionality.

    * If you only need remote shell access, you can use WinRS (Windows Remote Shell), new in Windows Vista. To get help with WinRS, type winrs /? at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.

    * Telnet is a simple, text-based program that you can use to connect to another computer over the Internet.

    * If you previously used HyperTerminal to troubleshoot modem problems, use Phone and Modem Options instead

    * Open Phone and Modem Options by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Hardware and Sound, and then clicking Phone and Modem Options.

    Note:-You might need to provide information, such as your country or region and any special phone dialing rules, in the Location Information dialog box before you can access the Phone and Modem Options dialog box.

    * If you previously used HyperTerminal to control serial devices, you can usually find a downloadable version of HyperTerminal on the Internet that is free for personal use.Download from here:
    HyperTerminal

    or

    You can use tera term for alternative to HyperTerminal



    Download teraterm from here:
    teraterm

    or

    Use Absolute Telnet program Download from here:
    Absolute Telnet

    or

    If you want (or just because you get used to it) you can still use old XP Hyper terminal. Just extract two files hypertrm.dll and hypertrm.exe. You can put them anywhere on the disk, no installation required. Of course, for that you need to have XP to extract files from.

    or

    Download and install latest version of putty from here:
    putty

    source

    Hi guys,
    I just came across a new terminal called “ClearTerminal” that could be used as a replacement for hyperterminal.
    It’s free and could be downloaded from clearconnex.com/content/clearterminal
    Try it yourself :P
