Hyperterminal can connect to modem and dial but cannot connect to COM port and do AT commands

Hi Folks,

I'm scratching my head over this hyperterminal issue and would really appreciate
a clue or two

This problem is specific to my WinXPP box. On my Win2k box, I have no problem
using Hyperterminal to connect directly to a COM port and issue AT commands to a
modem.

Symptoms on the WinXPP box:

***Phone & Modem Options applet in Control Panel shows the modem on COM3.
***From Diagnostics tab of Phone & Modem Options, I can successfully query the
modem.
***Winfax is configured for the modem on COM3 and has no trouble
sending/receiving faxes.
***Using Hyperterminal configured to connect to the modem (not direct to COM3),
I can manually dial phone numbers.
***BUT, using Hyperterminal configured to connect direct to COM3, I can't get
any response from the modem. Even though Hyperterminal properties under ASCII
setup are configured for local echo, keystrokes are not echoed.

I have swapped in a different modem with the same results.

Any thoughts?

TIA

Frank

Resolved by disabling Scroll Lock. Who would of thunk it.....

The embarassing part is that I did not systematically solve this. Instead, I
stumbled over an old note to myself inside the cover of a USR Courier manual.
Lets hope this archive will be an easier place to find it the next time I
forget.
