Hyperterm is a good general purpose PC telecom utility for running under Windows on the PC side when transferring files to/from your Apple II. To use Hyperterm, you must first have defined a connection setup and saved it under some name like "A2at300.ht". From then on, whenever you start Hyperterm, you can click Files and select Open and pick your connection setup from a list which will include A2at300.ht and any other setups you have created. Note: By the way, the Files menu relates to these connection setups, not to stuff you want to send. You pick stuff to send (or a directory to receive to) when you click Transfer and make a choice like "Send File" or "Send Text File". Once you choose a Transfer activity, you will be able to Browse folders. A 300 Baud Setup Here is an example of creating a 300 baud Hyperterm setup. It is intended for 'typing in' Text to your Apple II which is set to accept inputs through a serial port via the IN#2 command. So, the setup uses a fairly long "Line Delay" and uses no "Flow Control". 1- Start Hyperterm, get past any intro window (e.g. click "Cancel"), and select "New Connection" in the Files menu. 2- "Phone Number" page Connect using= Direct to Com 1 (or whatever PC Com port you will use) Click on Configure* and set Bits per second= 300 Data bits= 8 Parity= None Stop bits= 1 Flow control= None (You should not need to change any Advanced settings) Click OK *Note: This settings window comes up automatically on some versions. Click on the "Settings" page tab 3- "Settings" page Terminal keys is selected Emulation= Auto Detect Backscroll buffer lines= 500 (You should not need to change Terminal Setup) Click on ASCII Setup Send line ends with line feeds is not selected Echo typed characters locally is not selected Line delay= 40 milliseconds Character delay= 0 milliseconds Append line feeds ... is not selected Force incoming data to 7-bit ASCII is not selected Wrap lines that exceed terminal width is selected Click OK 4- Click OK again to finish. Then, click Files and do a Save As to save the new setup under the name "A2at300.ht" (or any other .ht name you like). A 19,200 Baud Setup This setup is intended for normal NULL modem file transfers back and forth with an Apple II running a telecom program such as ProTerm, ZLink, Modem MGR, Spectrum, etc.. It is identical to the 300 baud setup above except for the following: Bits per second= 19200 Flow control= Hardware** Line delay= 0 milliseconds Save the new setup under some name like "A2at19200.ht". **Note: If hardware flow control does not work, try "Xon/Xoff".
