Dialup error 718 or 678


#1

Hello,

I have a wavecom modem with AT&T simcard in it and created a dialup connection in the XP computer.
I get connection errors 678 or 718 - “Remote server not responding” most of the time when I try to connect. Very rarely the connection was successful. The signal strength is always above 27 when I check using AT command. Any one help me to resolve this? And my AT&T account is in active state.

Thanks,
Chozhan

So you need to use the Windows XP diagnostic features!

In the modem properties, on the ‘Diagnostics’ tab, check ‘Append to log’ - this will keep a log of all commands sent to the modem, and all responses received from the modem.
There is also a button to view the log (note that it’s just a text file - once you know where it is, you can view it with any application you like)

Note that these are Windows error codes - not specific to SiWi or rhe Fastrack.

Are you sure that the remote server is actually working correctly?
Do you have any access to its logs, etc?

Thanks,
Will try to enable logging and see what error it shows.
Btw, the remote server could be the AT&T server and we don’t have the access.
