built in modems.

Is it possible to re-initialize a built-in modem? I used to be able to do this in the (very) old days with VMS/Unix modem commands - is it possible with Windows or by going into DOS mode?
thanks in advance
Keith

I would think that Start, Settings, MODEM, Diagnostics would do it; however, it won’t happen if another application, etc. has control of the COM: port. What is the problem? Larry

### After a failed contact, sometimes impossible to get through - the modem hangs during each attempt. It seemed to me to be something like the "number blacklisted" that I used to get in the old old days with my 1200 bps modems, and I just had to type a modem message AT... something-or-other at the Dos/VMS/Unix prompt (according to which machine I was on) to clear it.
I have tried the Start settings modem diag process (my modem is on a clear Com port) but it doesn't work. Restarting the machine (with the danger I talked to you about in other messages that the machine itself hangs during reboot) does solve the problem...
I can live with it if I have to...
Thanks
Keith
