TeraTerm completely changed the way I work. I use the scripting language to pull Cisco configurations out of any of their devices. The Script pulls the the complete config to a file and opens Notepad++.
Here is the script.
; 01/04/00 Brad Schrunk
; Download Current Runnning Config into editor.
; Takes Snap Shot of Router after the config has been updated.
; Login has already been done. User will update snapshot from inside
; of router enable mode.
; open Tera Term
;This script pulls the router running configuration into
;a text editor.
ct = ""
ploff = ""

tlon = 'term length 24'

fd1 = 'c:\files\capture\routerrun.txt'
fd2 = 'c:\files\capture\routerrun.txt.bak'
; Use whatever editor you want.
fedit = 'notepad++.exe c:\files\capture\routerrun.txt'
logopen fd1 0 0
sendln tloff ;turns of term length 24
sendln sc ;sends show run command
;wait n ;waits for script to ntp server. ensures end of file
;wait e ;waits for true end of script
Teraterm is an intelligent piece of software. Once you use this you will never use anything else. I would give it a ten if I could.
Teraterm used with Autohotkey is a killer combination.
None that I can think of.

Although Tera Term is perfectly downloadable and operable on my computer, it appears that the program hasn't been updated for 17 years (yeesh, seriously?). Also, the vast majority of the display seems to be in Japanese (or some other Asian language) rather than English, which is a letdown because that means I have to rely on a translator to do the comprehension for me.
