RAS modem won't answer
Posted on 2000-04-13
I have a small peer-to-peer network with a Win98 machine as server. One of the machines is running NT 4.0 SP6 Workstation and is to act as my RAS server. I have installed RAS service ans started it ok. The RAS modem is configured to send and receive calls. The protocals for RAS are TCP and Net Beui. The TCP is configured to get IP address from a static pool. The modem I am using is a USR 56k External. The modem dials out fine. The NT machine is set up as a workgroup with no domain. When I use dial-up networking from another (win95) machine the modem won't pick up. I can get it to pick up if I go into Hyper Terminal and type ata while the client is in process of calling the RAS machine. At that point the client begins to try and verify name and password and then fails with various errors but that is another question. I need to get past step one with having the moden answer. Please help - I'm getting desperate. By the way when I first installed RAS I could get the modem to answer. During debugging of the verification problem it stopped. The last thing I tried before it failed was adding the IPX protocol. I've since removed it by still can not get the modem to answer. I'm almost ready to format and reinstall NT to get back to where I was.
