Hi there.

I'm trying to setup my own BBS, but now have a problem.
The problem is to get my modem to answer incomming calls!

I know it's a question about the correct init string, but i bought the modem with the computer, and didn't get a manual for it :(

My modem is a Aceex model 3314.
So can anyone tell me how to get the modem to answer incomming calls?

Please help!

Regards. Martin Møller.

Set the register 0

ats0=2 will answer after the 2nd ring.
ats0=0 will not answer any call.

I tried the ats=2 which did'nt work :(
According to the docs for my BBS i have to initialize the modem to go into answer mode.
But nothing i have tried so far works!
The default init string in the BBS config is: ATH0S0=0&D2X1

I know it sets s-register to 0, but that's ok as the BBS software is supposed to answer the phone it self (not the modem)

But it can let the modem answer, which is what i'm after now!

Does someone have a list of all Aceex 3314 AT strings they can send me?

Another way to answer a call manualy is tho check the com port for the ring messages and to send an ATA after a ring comes in. To get the messages by name send a ATV1 in your init string.

Friend Freak: you said "the BBS software is supposed to answer the phone it self (not the modem)"

Keep in mind that software reacts only under modem indication, because it has no way to access phone line thru another thing but the modem. That's why your modem FIRST must pick up the call, and only then software can detect that operation.

I don't know why your init string is ATH0S0=0&D2X1; that says "hang up the line, and don't respond to any incoming call". Ridiculous. State there S0=2 (or whatever be the number of rings you want to wait until modem attends) and check what's go on.

I was thinking there IS a situation where software can react although modem didn't pick up line yet, and it is when the incoming call makes modem to say "RING" (and, after receiving that, soft can command modem with an ATA command in order to pick up call).

Perhaps that software package works that way, but honestly this is the first time I see something like that... :(

The software is supposed to detect the RING signal and then pickup the phone with ATA.
It can be turned off though, and that's what i choose to do.

But no matter what i try the modem wont pickup the phone!
