: Mark,
: 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.
: Thanks,
: Gary T.

Hi Gary,
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?
