Is there any replacement program for HyperTerminal for Windows XP, to work same stuff ? My hyperterminal in communications is empty ( don't know why and I don't have installation CD for xp anymore ). Please help

What are you trying to achieve? PuTTY is a terminal application freely available for Windows. – user3463 Jan 10 '11 at 8:31

PuTTY is a free alternative to HyperTerminal.

Another free alternative is Tera Term.

As a replacement for HyperTerminal, I can suggest RealTerm (, but you can't use it for dialing Modems or BBS Systems. (Read on the Homepage)
