What is HyperTerminal?

HyperTerminal is our terminal emulation software for Windows. It was originally developed as a ‘lite’ version of our HyperACCESS program, and was licensed by Microsoft to include with Windows 95 up through Windows XP. This was discontinued when Microsoft released Windows Vista. We have continued to update the software since then, and the current version of HyperTerminal Private Edition is compatible with all the latest versions of Windows.

What is HyperTerminal used for?

HyperTerminal can be used for a wide variety of purposes. It is often used to connect to computer and networking equipment, phone systems, medical billing systems, medical and lab equipment, industrial equipment, radio transmitters and receivers, heating and cooling and other building maintenance systems, and many others.

How does HyperTerminal work?

HyperTerminal supports text-based communication through Telnet, SSH, Modem, and Serial port connections. The software receives data through the connection, and processes the data through a terminal emulator that is designed to mimic different types of terminal systems. The terminal emulator processes control codes and decides where and how that data is displayed on the terminal screen, and also allows control codes to be sent back to the system as needed.
