Hi All

Ive just set up a new ras server with a dial up modem, it all works fine, i am just wondering if there is a way to change how long the modem waits before accepting the incoming call (IE How many rings or seconds to wait before answering). Im not sure if this is possible so any help is greatly appreciated

Thanks

To my knowledge there is no setting on the RRAS server to answer inbound calls after x rings.  :)

Depending on the modems that you are using you may be able to set that feature through the modems properties.  Check the modems properties, I know some digiboard modems do have this feature. Here is an example from Intel modems:



If you use a SatisFAXtion Modem/350, SatisFAXtion Classic, or Upgraded Upgraded SatisFAXtion Classic, you can configure Crosstalk Communicator's Hostr's Host Mode to allow the SatisFAXtion to receive faxes. Here's how:

Use the SatisFAXtion SETUP program to set the faxmodem to answerthe SatisFAXtion SETUP program to set the faxmodem to answer after the desired number of rings. Specify at least 2 rings if yourr the desired number of rings. Specify at least 2 rings if your phone line provides a "distinctive ring". Otherwise, specify 1 ringe line provides a "distinctive ring". Otherwise, specify 1 ring (or more if desired).more if desired).


This example is for a fax, but that doesnt matter.  Whether the modem picks up after one ring or four rings, this is a function of the modem and not of the RRAS server.  Hope this helps.

Found solution on JSI site at
http://www.jsiinc.com/suba/tip0100/rh0114.htm

The only way I have found to get RAS to answer on "x" rings is to edit the registry at:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class

and to locate the modems entry (Usually the 4th entry). Double click to expand it. Locate the modem in question where 0000 is the 1st modem. Double click and highlight the Monitor key. Double click the 1st entry which should be ATS0= and change the number of rings.

You will need to stop and restart the RAS service, but a reboot may be necessary.
