Make sure you have hyperterm setup to emulate an ANSI terminal.  If Cntl-Break does not work try Cntl-F6-Break.

When you are running Hyperterm, select File from the menu, then properties, then click on the settings tab.  In the middle should "Emulation".

Also, sometimes this just does not plain work with Hyperterm.  I don't know why, but it just does not.

You may want to try putty (http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/) instead of Hyperterm, or get Hyperterm PE (personal edition) which is just slightly better than the Hyperterm that comes with Windows.

I personally use a combination of putty and telnet with Cygwin.
