Generate TMK and TPK with split component

Can I create TMK and TPK with split component by connecting to HSM host through Hyperterminal.

What are the command to pass?

You cannot connect to a Thales HSM using hyperterminal to issue host commands, but I believe you can do so to issue console commands. The commands to create a TMK and TPK depend upon your exact needs. Do you want to get a clear key, an encrypted key or both? Do you want to print out components?

how to issue an host command ? The simulator doesn't provide that option.

That is because the simulator accepts host commands and doesn't issue them. To see how to connect to the simulator or a real HSM and send host commands see this wiki article.
