Serial Com

Hi
I'm trying to establish GPRS connection in winxp via my phone used as modem on COM3.
I have used CreateFile, ReadFile, WriteFile for sending and receiving AT-commands and it seems to work as expected. However part of the response i get after sending a command is not returned before i send the next command.

Example:
Send1: ATZ\r
Receive1: ATZ\r
Send2: AT+CGATT=1\r
Receive2: \r\nOK\r\nAT+CGATT=1\r

The \r\nOK\r\n part i would like to be returned at the end of first reception, but not sure how to do this. I sniffed winxp dialup to see how it is done and it seems to use IOCTL_SERIAL_GET_COMMSTATUS: Retrieve COM status, in order to get last bytes. However I'm not sure how to do this in my program

Thanks in advance

Hi connerdk,

You need to give time for the OK to come through after Receive1:ATZ\r.

The ATZ is a command to the modem. The modem will echo every character you type/send. When it receives the \r it begins to execute the command. When you read what is in the comms buffer after you send the \r you are reading the characters it has already echoed. If you wait, perhaps up to about one second, checking for the 'OK' to come back it should arrive. You should do this for all commands you send.
