Hi,

If you want to connect to a server or port, I downloaded putty from: http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/

If you want to connect to a COM port or LPT port, you can also buy hyperterminal for vista from a third party: http://www.hilgraeve.com/hyperterminal.html
I believe this is the company that originally made Hyperterminal.

I believe you can even simply copy the Hyperterminal EXE from a copy of Windows XP.
Microsoft removed it from Vista for "security reasons". Not sure what that means.

Hope that helps.
Dan

I suggest PuTTY: http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty

It is the most widely used free telnet/SSH client on the Windows architecture.
You should not let it intinidate you with the vast range of options it presents: that is only an indication of the sheer power behind it.

Select "telnet", put in the hostname or IP, and click "Open" - that's all you have to do.

More instructions are to be found here:
