Are you talking about something to access a remote system via dial-up?

Personally, I can't even find that worth the trouble...

Vista, just as with XP has Remote Desktop integrated... works rather well for me..

I have the full version of PC anywhere and i heard that Vista would be able to connect to PC anywhere hosts with a built in client. Not the same thing as Remote desktop.

I use hyper terminal to configure some network equipment. Here is Microsoft's answer to this:

What happened to HyperTerminal?
Applies to all editions of Windows Vista.
Which edition of Windows Vista am I using?

HyperTerminal is no longer part of Windows. However, you can use Telnet. It's a simple, text-based program that you can use to connect to another computer over the Internet.

If you previously used HyperTerminal to troubleshoot modem problems, use Phone and Modem Options instead:


• Open Phone and Modem Options by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Hardware and Sound, and then clicking Phone and Modem Options.

NoteYou might need to provide information, such as your country or region and any special phone dialing rules, in the Location Information dialog box before you can access the Phone and Modem Options dialog box.


So i found the hyperterm.exe and the hyperterm.dll files on my XP pro machine and pasted them into the system32 folder on the vista machine. Works like a charm
