Modem drops connection after ~ 1-2 min
Posted on 2000-05-10
I have a problem dialing into a remote computer using Carbon Copy. After a minute or two, the data stops moving, (the modem lights go dead) and the connection is dropped. I'm sure the problem is on the remote side as I can dial into other systems and keep a connection for as long as I need.
I suspect that there are phone line problems at this location as we had another computer at this location that had the exact same behaviour. I have changed the port speed to 38400 (it is a 56K USR Internal on an Asus P3BF MB) and set the Receive and Transmit buffers to low. These changes have not altered the behaviour.
Are there any other changes I can make to make the connection more stable? I not concerned with speed--I just want the connection to be stable.
