My internet provider recently upgraded its SLIP modem pool to 28.8 kbps, which
is nice; not so nice is that I can't seem to get a 28.8 kbps SLIP connection
to work on my Amiga 2500. I'm using the internal serial port. Connections at
14.4 kbps work fine, but anything over that fails -- either the serial port
just fails to communicate at all with the modem, or AmiTCP (version 4.0 demo)
cannot get rhcslip.device to connect through the serial connection. I've
tried several alternatives to the CBM standard serial.device found in KS/WB
3.1 (artser.device, BaudBandit.device, 8n1.device, v34serial.device) without
success. Using these device drivers, the modem is able to make a high speed
connection with the other modem (indeed, ordinary terminal programs seem to
work just fine at 28.8 kbps), but AmiTCP cannot seem to get rhcslip.device to
work on the connection -- I cannot get any TCP/IP program to work, including a
ping to the machine to which I have the modem connection.
I've checked all the settings in my Arexx dialer scripts and startnet script
and I don't think I've missed anything there. Any help greatly appreciated.
I've been able to use this modem on my Bridgeboard to make a 28.8 kbps SLIP
connection using Trumpet Winsock and Netscape, so the problem has to be
something in my Amiga software setup. Many thanks for your patience and any
help that might be offered.
