Setting up a configuration environment
If you use the Windows 2003 Server operating system on your PC, add a HyperTerminal, and then log
in to and manage the switch as described in this document. If you use Windows 2008 Server, Windows
7, Windows Vista, or any other operating system on your PC, use the third party terminal software. For
how to use the third party terminal software, see the user guide or online help of that software.
Windows 2000 and Windows XP operating systems have the HyperTerminal. This section takes
Windows XP as an example.
To set up a configuration environment:
Select Start > All Programs > Accessories > Communications > HyperTerminal.
