COM port for EICON DIVA modem


I have an EICON DIVA PCI ISDN internal modem. I have just installed a software which uses modem communications, but uses its own modem definitions instead of the windows drivers. "Eicon Diva" appears in the modem list of the software, but the problem is that the port field only lists COM ports. But the neither of the two DIVA drivers (V.120 and X.75) is installed on a COM port (the ports are DiV120 and DiX75). Is there something I can do? I use the DIVA modem mostly for internet connections (Eicon Channel 0, which does not appear in the list of drivers in the modem properties (diagnostics tab) of the control panel), so I'm afraid changing the port of the DIVA drivers might cause conflicts (I also have an analog modem on COM2) and prevent me from using the ISDN modem for the internet.

Thanks in advance.

I would switch the COM of the Analog modem and let Eicon Diva take the COM 2 port.You should then try to install the Eicon as a modem as a fax modem asuming that you use it to send faxes. Or just uninstall the other Modem, install the Eicon first, then reinstall the analog modem and let the computer figure out what COM it will take. Many times WIN98( if that's what you're using) doesn't recognize the right COM and puts it on a taken COM.  SO you should change it (in the BIOS if neccessary)
