Hello, I received my Digi PortServer TS 16 today. I read up that you can connect a port on the digi to a serial port on an system and enable modem emulation on the port so you can ‘dial’ into the system using Telnet on port 50001.
I have an legacy DOS box running software that allows people to dial in. I was hoping to connect the digi to its serial port, setup modem emulation, in the software on the computer change the port its listening to, to COM1 and have it answer like a usual modem to a RING signal.
I’ve spend around 4 hours playing with the baud rates, flow control and altpin. Nothing seems to generate the RING to the computer… Am I just missing something?
I’m fairly new to the support forum and I came across your post. I’ve been trying to figure out modem emulation parameters with some legacy software as well. Could you please provide a description or layout of the configuration on how you got the modem emulation to work?
Your help would be greatly appreciated.
