OT Disconnect

I'm using OS 7.6.1 on my Performa 6400/200 with internal express modem. I keep getting "Open Transport-You've been disconnected" errors for no  apparent reason. I'm using Netscape Communicator 4.01 but I had the same with 3.01. It seems to happen if I hit the stop loading button and then try to click on a new link, it won't respond, or says server not responding then I get the above error message. It also happens when I switch from e-mail back to browswer windows on Netscape. I'm using OT 1.1.2 and OT/PPP 1.0
Thanks for any suggestions.

As far as I can tell, this is an OT or OT/PPP problem. I get this at random also. It can happen in any internet program, not just Netscape.



If I read the release notes correctly, this problem is supposed to be fixed in OT 1.2 and OT/PPP 1.0.1 that ships with Mac OS 8. Try it out and see if it helps.

You have deducted 10 points for an answer that solves nothing.Mac OS 8 does not solve this problem at all. Mac tech support has no clue and actually recommended to me that I deinstall OS 8 and go back to 7.6

I have used my back button twice to look at the same non-answer to this question and now have given up 30 points for absolutely nothing-nice going.

it's not Mac OS 8, it's OT 1.2 and OT/PPP 1.0.1 but I think they both require OS 8 (I forget). I will say that it definately solves my problems. I no longer get OT/PPP suddenly disconnecting me from the net.

If you are still having problems, I supect a problem with the CCL file for your modem.

Hope this helps.

Thanks,
I just got Mac OS8 and I still get disconnects, but not as often. Now I just get Netscape crash at close. I upgraded to Norton Utilities 3.5.1 with crashguard to help save my work, but I'll definitely check the CCL file. Thanks.

At this point, it's important to narrow things down.

1) Do you get disconnects after a specific time period (say when idle after a certain time). It that's the case, Make sure the Disconnect if ide for XX minutes is NOT checked in the Connection options for OT/PPP.

2) does it happen in other Internet apps? This would narrow the scope to a problem with OT/PPP or the CCL Scripts or a specific application (Netscape in this case). if it only happens in Netscape, try Internet Explorer--does it still happen.

3) does it happen only when downloading certain web pages? Again, this could be browser specific as opposed to OT/PPP or OT.

Hope this helps.
