Which is the best and freely available USB utility software on the
net..
I mean to say , the USB utility similar to Hyperterminal e.t.c..

I would like to use this, to test one of the OLIMEX boards serial to
USB ..

Thanks,

Most people use the USB as a virtual serial port on the PC. This would
allow you to use Hyperterminal, or just about any other terminal program.

However, some terminal programs don't seem to work with virtual ports.
The ones that go thru the standard Win32 API normally work fine.

RealTerm is one that doesn't, unfortunately.
