Hyperterminal Paste to Host

I program Cisco Pix firewalls with a predetermined script that I have in a word document - I just select all, copy and paste to host in hyperterminal.  My previous laptop had 2000 on it and it worked fine.  Now I have XP pro, and even though everything is highlighted when I go to do my copy, the paste skips entire sections of the script, and does it totally randomly.  I can't figure it out.  It also happens from a text document, not just Word.  The only other difference is that i am now using a USB to serial connector where before I was using a "real" serial port on the previous laptop.  Any ideas?  Thanks!

HyperTerminal & XP

Windows XP HyperTerminal is usually fine for Direct connection to your Routers and Switches etc, However when you are doing password recovery, it cannot sent the Ctrl+Break sequence required. and does other things incorrectly

And use their HyperTerminal instead.

Morning Lee :)

Im not suggesting the poster is doing password recovery :) The version of HT that was in the early versions of XP was lifted straight from windows 2000 and didnt work to well with XP (this has now been fixed) I keep all my running-configs in TFTP and TXT files cause its easier to do a "paste to host" than execute a 200+ line config line by line, but Had problems doing this in XP in the past, usually due to two things,

The first being Hyperterminal itself (more likely) the second being, there is formatting in the TXT document that cannot be seen (a select all will show that)

In either instance I think the question has PAQ value, though I dont think its worth 500 points, I agree with no feedback its difficult to call but maybe a PAQ and No Refund would be a better disposition.

Regards

Pete
