Re: Modem Upload Problems

GEMS has always had this problem since we no longer hangup the modem.  The problem is we try to detect a modem by sending an 'AT' command and look
for a response from the modem. Since the modem has not hung-up we do not get one. Therefor we assume we are talking directly to an Accu-Vote and use the DSR line for connection detection, which the modem has set.  We then send the Ctrl-R sequence but get nothing back so timeout.

We seam to have a problem with modem uploads, I saw a phenomenon in Fairbanks Alaska, and Washington County where the Modem would repeat the same characteristics as Tari’s problem above. 


Under what circumstances does it exhibit this behavior, and in what version did it start behaving like this?


My testing on 1.14 indicates something worse than Tari's behavior:  there is no time out so the line is just held open forever.  I am looking into this now.

I guess I should have made a bug report about it, instead of just letting it fly    


You said it not me.
