Hi,

Please suggest me the free Serial Communication Software. That can be used to send and receive the data. Good software to use for debugging RS232 communication.
i.e. PC -->RS232-->Any external device.

Thanks,

Regards,
Prashant

Thanks for reply.
Hyper Terminal is not good software.
e.g. If I want to select the data type: Hex, Text, Decimal etc. Not available in Hyper Terminal.
If somebody know better software then will be useful.
Thanks.

PuTTY is very well-spoken of, but I prefer a fork called KiTTY.

Realterm (http://realterm.sourceforge.net/) has some useful (obscure!) display options which may do the job...
