Which settings represent the proper BITs per second, data bits, and parity settings for a HyperTerminal session to the router?
- 9600,8, even
When setting up a HyperTerminal session to either a router or a switch, the proper settings must be enabled or the connection will not work. The proper settings are 9600 bits per second, 8 data bits, and none in the parity box. The HyperTerminal application is provided on Windows operating systems up to Windows XP. The path to the tool is Start > Programs > Accessories > Communications > HyperTerminal. For later Windows operating systems, a HyperTerminal program must be downloaded and installed.
After opening the tool, you will name the connection and select a COM port if you want to use a port other than the default, which is the serial port to which the console cable is connected. You will then be presented with the following box:
The settings should reflect 9600 bits per second, 8 data bits, no parity, 1 stop bit, and no flow control, as illustrated in this graphic:
All other options include incorrect settings in at least one category.
