Title: Baud Rate Support under Windows NT RAS
Date: July 29, 1998
A customer is operating a Blue Heat 8 under WinNT 4.0(sp3) and trying to configure Remote Acess Server ( RAS) . The customer has an ISDN Terminal Adapter ( ISDN Modem), the supports baud rates greater than 115,200. The customer would like to set the baud rate above 115.2k, but they are finding that RAS only offers baud rates up to 115,200.
The baud rates RAS supports is dependant on what the installed modem can support. A standard serial port can only support up to and including 115,200. If a modem can support baud rates higher, then so can RAS.
Windows 95 and NT do not support ISDN in their standard driver set, so the customer must obtain the driver from the manufacturer. Once the customer has located the recent driver/inf file(s) for their modem, they will need to set up RAS using these drivers.
When installing RAS the customer will be prompted to configure the modem properties. The maximum settings, driver dependant, may be selected here. If baud rates above 115,200 are not a choice, then contact the modem manufacturer for another driver.
Once RAS has been set up correctly, the customer must then configure the modem. Select Control Panel – Modems – Properties. In this box the customer will then choose the same setting they choose in the RAS set up. Once this has been changed, the system will need to be re-booted.
Once the system has re-booted, the customer should see all the baud rates available in RAS in My Computer – Dial Up Networking – More – Edit Entry and Modem Properties.
