MSComm Control - 03/07/02 07:55 PM

Hey, I was wondering how I can...
1. Get my modem to pickup when another modem calls it...
2. Transfer data between the modems.

If anyone knows how to use the MSComm control and could help me that would be great. If it makes a difference I have an HSP Micro Modem 56k Flex V9.0 Modem/Fax deal heh. I know the commands to do all of this (Testing in hyperterminal) but I want to do it in VB now. Thanx :rolleyes:

hrm, once a long time ago I played around with the sample project using that control. However, I have not done anything else with it. What are you making it for? If it interests me, I'll help you out. MSComm sounds fun.

Well, I am trying to make a program where you can call up the modem using your modem and recieve a list of options... Lets say for example "Dial to RSA/AcctName" or whatever. Just a way of making a server without using TCP/IP once I/We(Hopefully) get the basic server down we can modify it to do whatever our needs/desires want. heh.

That's right neo - /me takes a moment to stiffle a laugh at neo's pathetic and constant whining - nobody knows how to use it and I've been too busy carving my own paths to help ya out on this one. Looks like you'll be treading new roads neo! Blazing new trails! Lead the movement! Be the first! Be the one everybody follows and laments as the leetest.

Ya, learn something on your own for once.

In the MsComm thing, there is an event that happens when the modem rings. In most modems, there is also a ring count register (S1).

When you get the comEvRing event, just look at the ring counter in the modem if you wanna have it ring a couple times first, or just pick it up there.

Look up AT modem commands to control the modem. It's easy. (ATH1 brings the phone off the hook).
