Ant INS oddity - help?

Ant INS oddity - help?

Post by Dave Lan » Fri, 28 May 1999 04:00:00

 Hi all,

 here's an odd one for you to chew over - or maybe everybody
 but me knows about it...

 the story:   I'm setting up an A5K for my pa-in-law to get
 onto Freeserve.  As a trial run I set up an account for
 myself using a PC at work.  No probs.  Then at home, I
 set up the A5k with the Ant INS.  After getting over the
 usual spelling mistakes, it has all worked fine. Wheeeee!

 Next day, set up an account for your man, using the user/login
 names that he wanted.  Back home, and news is fine, web is fine,
 but aaaaagghhh, no email.

 Checked the config, only to discover that there seems to be a
 32 char limit (in terminator) in the mail setup.  You guessed it,
 I've got to try and enter a 32 char name, and it keeps truncating the
 last char.  Tried editing the config files in Zap, all to no
 avail.  A quick look at some of the templates in INS shows
 a 32 char limit, but changing this doesn't help.

 Would be grateful for any suggestions, ta!



Watch your mouth, kid, or you'll find yourself floating home.


1. Ant INS timeouts

I seem to be having a bit of a problem with Ants suite
I can connect OK and start downloading mail or news and
everythings ok for a bit and then the modem just appears
to go to sleep i.e. the amount recv' stops incrementing
and the cps falls away to 2-10. Shortly after time-outs
occur and then an abort.
I seem to remember something about a module which would
'kickstart' the modem if this happened but for the life
of me I can't think when or where.
any comments/help gratefully received.
