there is a Modem raid in our company and from time to time a modem becomes unavailable. I am supposed to write a WatchDog, which will run on a background as a service (no problem with that) and will do connect to all serial ports and checks modems there.
Any idea? I suppose I will use some ocx or dll which handles serial ports and send ATI commands. If no answer, then modem hanged up and send email.
Just want to ask whether there are some ready made snippets for this among EE users? Any thing I should be aware of?
Have a good weekend!
