Using HyperTerminal to Test a Connection

Top  Previous  Next

 

One of the common uses for HyperTerminal is just to see if a connection is alive. To test your equipment, or to test specific settings. Following are two procedures:

 

Using HyperTerminal with Two HyperTerminal Windows, one DS (connecting both the serial cable and the network cable to the computer).

 

Using HyperTerminal with a loopback connection, as described under Creating a Loopback for Testing.
