RB> I use the line:

Try :  Open "Com1:300,E,7,1,CD0,CS0,DS0,OP0" for random ...

CD0 turns off carrier detect timeout
CS0 turns off clear to send timeout
DS0 turns off data-set-ready timeout and
OP0 turns off OPEN statement timeout.

Once you get it going you can eliminate one option at a time and
finetune.  The problem is that his machine is running faster than his
modem can respond.
