Is it possible to use a Hayes compatible?
I am currently using a Hayes smartmodem 1200 in
autoanswer mode and it seems to work pretty well
with the following reservations:
(1) I had to modify the defmethod (:dial-the-phone hayes-modem) in
modems.lisp to get my modem to use dial tones rather than pulse dialing.
I was told how to accomplish this same result by changing the subnets
patterns, but I forget how to do it.
(2) Frequently, my system gets into a state where it is not possible for
me to successfully probe Riverside. My modem goes off hook, dials,
Riverside answers, and I see a carrier detect. However, the carrier is
then immediately lost. This seems to be a Riverside-specific problem
as I can successfully dial up other (non-Symbolics) computers.
I'm currently working with Symbolics software support on sorting out
what's going on.
Sorry, no suggestions but, I have noticed the same problem with
Riverside occasionally. And before we got our sync-link going I noticed
the same problem with the Symbolics mailer at our facility in Idaho. I
seem to remember chalking it up to some funnies in the :ANSWERER method
but I'm not sure.
