Hyperterminal to console to cisco devices

I use windows 7 but it doesn't come with hyperterminal. I downloaded Tera Term VT, but it is just better than nothing.
I don't want to use putty, because you will have to configure ip address on the device before connecting to it through Putty.
I wonder if there is a link to download a free and good hyperterminal.

Thanks

You don't have to configure an ip address if you use Putty. Not if you are going to console to the device. You just select serial and enter the COM port you are using.

If you have an XP machine, you can copy the hypertrm.dll file and hypertrm.exe files to your windows 7 computer.  The dll file needs to go in the system 32 folder.
