Hi Vee_Mod,

Thank you for replying me on my request.
OS : Windows XP
Application : Hyperterminal
What I need, is simple but difficult to figure it out. I need a batch file to load hyperterminal and launch a call on its own. or how to use hyperterminal in a batch file that can open automatically a .ht file to launch a call. Is there any switch for hypertrm.exe. Any idea will be greatly appreciated

Sorry don't have a modem to test this with but you could use RasDial for the dialup and then telnet to send files etc..

Alterntaively you may want to look at a third party tool that can do evertthing for you like Kermit - or CommNet -

Hope that's of some help.

This is a good idea however we can send in telnet I don't thing we can copy or get a file from a remote server. Don't we. If so how we can copy the files remotely.

This has been resolved by using a vbscript. This vbscript uses hypertherminal to dial then the script enter automatically username and password. Done!!!!!!!!

Before loading the script create an ht file in hypertherminal

Set oshell = createobject("Wscript.Shell")"cmd.exe"
wscript.sleep 500
oshell.sendkeys"hypertrm.exe d:\smtplogs\"+("{Enter}")
wscript.sleep 6000
wscript.sleep 500
wscript.sleep 500
oshell.sendkeys"d:\smtplogs\router.txt"+("{Enter}&q uot;)
wscript.sleep 12000
oshell.sendkeys" "
wscript.sleep 6000
oshell.sendkeys" "
wscript.sleep 1500
oshell.sendkeys" "
wscript.sleep 1500
oshell.sendkeys" "
wscript.sleep 1500
wscript.sleep 1500
wscript.sleep 1500
wscript.sleep 1500
set oshell = nothing
