In Reply to: Alerting via Pager posted by Gary Trimmier on January 29, 2002 at 07:05:59:
: I have tried to get alerting via pager to work, without any success. When I am connected to the Internet via my ISP the alert fails. In the alert options dialog I have checked Dial Pager using modem. Also have checked Internet connection shares the same modem. When I run a test the Disconnecting Remote Access Services Dialog displays, then the first line states Access to COM port denied. The appropriate timing occurs to allow a Cancel if I desired. The dialog is closed and the ISP is diconnected. However, a FM message box states Access is denied, then another one Failed to sent page. I have tried this without being connected to my ISP and everthing works correctly. Any help will be appreciated.

FM is only able to disconnect Remote Access Services (RAS),
such as Window's Dial-Up Networking connections, used with most dial-up ISP's.
AOL is different, and FM will not be able to hang up the connection on AOL.
AOL does not use the RAS approach, it is a more proprietary method, that FM
can't control. I'm actually surprised that the ISP does disconnect at some
point? I'm assuming from your e-mail address that you are using AOL.
What version of AOL are you using, or how are you dialing into AOL?
