HyperTerminal Private Edition is a terminal emulation program that supports communications over TCP/IP networks, Dial-Up Modems, and serial COM ports. Some uses of HyperTerminal Private Edition: Use a TCP/IP network to connect to systems on the Internet or your network using Telnet or Secure Shell (SSH); Use a Dial-Up modem to dial into modem based systems; Talk directly to many different types of devices using serial COM ports; Define key macros, save keystrokes, or adapt to host systems that require special keys or command sequences; Assign passwords, user ID's and host commands to a single key; Select terminal screen size and colors to take advantage of host systems that let you adjust the number or rows and columns displayed; Set the program to automatically exit after you log out. Use pass-through printing to allow host systems to print directly to the users printer; Zmodem crash recovery; TCP/IP support for accessing telnet sites on the Internet; Auto-redial busy telephone numbers; Conduct multiple simultaneous telnet sessions; Set HTPE as your default telnet client.
