Modem pool not avail on some workstations

Modem pool not avail on some workstations

Post by Paul Turle » Sun, 31 Dec 1899 09:00:00

On at least three workstations, I can't create a port to point to a shared
modem.  The setup is pretty simple on those station where it works...  Ports
/ Add / (select Shared Modem..) and a COM port to assign the shared modem
to...  but on some stations I don't see the dialog that offers the shared
modem option.

We're running NT WS 4.0 with SP3 & IE 4.0.  I've tried reinstalling NTWS,
SP3, & IE.

Another (probably unrelated) problem is that when I launch the DUN
connectoid from a shortcut on a working station, it fires two instances of
the DUN connection and, of course the second one fails because the modem is
in use.

1. Modem Pool not "pooling"

There are 3 modems in this SBS2000 Shared modem pool,
Com3, Com4 & Com5. ONLY Com5 picks up when a client uses
the modem pool. If a second user tries to dial it
says "port is already in use". I can dial out through any
of the 3 modems w/HyperTerm from the Server Console. Also
added the other 2 "virtual" com ports to the other
clients. Any suggestions why only 1 shared modem is
picking up?
