modem - "cannot open port"
Posted on 1997-10-11
I'm installing Win95 on a new multimedia system with a network. All is well, except I can't open the port to my modem.
At first I tried it with the internal modem that came with the pc. Com2 was disabled at the bios, and Win95 correctly setup Com2 from the modem. The settings all checked out. When clicking on a modem connection I receive "dial up networking or another program is accessing your modem."
Next, I uninstalled the internal modem and installed my old external modem to Com2, with Com2 enabled at the bios. Same problem.
Then I changed Com2 to Com4, same problem.
I've checked the register and ini files and don't see anything unusual.
I've lots of hours in this installation and setup, and I don't want to reinstall if I can avoid it.
