What is the standard software authorised by Cisco to connect to a cisco switch.
I can use putty and hyperterminal to connect but when I try and copy the config it does not give me the whole configuration file.
I suspect the Cisco software will enable me to copy the config in full and save it for backup purposes.

Cisco has been pushing its Cisco Network Assistant for this kind of stuff.

Are you trying to backup the config? Typically this is done by tftp or ftp.
Here is the Cisco explanation of how to do it.

You also might want to try the CNA or Cisco Network Assistant software that comes with newer cisco equipment.
