Docklight and Docklight Scripting are perfect companions for many serial testing and configuration tasks, and let you get the job done faster than using HyperTerminal or other standard terminal software. Docklight / Docklight Scripting are available as non-expiring (not time-limited) evaluation versions. They already provide full communication functionality, and can be used free of charge for basic testing. See below for the software download and information about the evaluation version limits. Please note: Docklight has a different focus than Hyperterminal. It is designed for testing serial application protocols (e.g. MODBUS or AT Modem Commands) and it is NOT a terminal emulator for VT100 or other terminal standards. If you require an emulator for VT100 or other terminal standards, please check the original HyperTerminal website for a software download for Microsoft Vista.
