Using HyperTerminal

HyperTerminal is a Windows accessory that enables you to connect your computer to another PC or online service. HyperTerminal is a full-featured communications tool that greatly simplifies getting online. With HyperTerminal you can connect to a friend's computer, a university, an Internet service provider, or even CompuServe.

Before the existence of graphical interfaces to online services such as CompuServe and The Microsoft Network, most communications tools were character-oriented. For example, students all over the world used terminal emulation programs to connect to their schools'computers. They typically used VT100 terminal emulation to make their PCs behave like any other display terminal on the system.
