Serial port test

I need a script to check connectivity to a device on my network.  I'm told by vendor that the device should recognize the AT command.

 In some locations this device is connected to a serial port while in other locations it is connected with an ip address.  Can someone suggest the easiest (and free) way to test connectivity.  I do have a dos version of kermit but not certain if I can test both serial and tcpip connections with it.  Any help would be appreciated.

Windows HyperTerminal supports both dialup (serial port) and telnet connections.

Please, no hyperterm!
That program should have been shredded before they programmed it.
Yes, I have a slight aversion against it ;)
Instead try putty: www.putty.org
It does the same and more (and is free :)
Ernie BeekExpertCommented:
Oh, you can also do scripting with it.
