2.6 Testing Your Modem After Installation
In order to test your modem you should be familiar
with your communication software. Load and set up your
communication software and enter into "terminal mode."
Make sure that the COM Port and IRQ settings of the
software modem match the modem. Type AT on your
terminal screen and press ENTER. You may see "AATT" or
nothing on the screen. In either case, the modem should
respond with an OK or 0. If it does not, please refer to Section
6 for troubleshooting information.
2.7 Using Your Modem
The communication software included with your mo-
dem product provides a user friendly interface to access the
fax, voice, and data functions of your modem. This software
should be sufficient for all of your communication needs.
There may be times when you need to access the modem
manually via modem commands. Read Section 3 for a
summary description of the modem command set before
manually accessing the modem. You may want to read the
software manual first, however, as the software may already
provide a user friendly method of accessing the functions you
need (i.e. dialing or answering calls).
2.8 Where To Go From Here
You should familiarize yourself with the functions
available from the included software by reading its manual.
You will be accessing most, if not all, of the modem's
functions from this software. You may also use any other
commercially available communication software with the
modem. Read Section 3 only if you are interested in accessing
the modem manually, and not through the included software.
Section 4 and 5 contain reference material, and can be
skipped. If you have difficulties getting your modem to work,
read Section 6, Troubleshooting, to find answers to com-
monly asked questions and problems.
