How to change flow control


#1

Hi, as part of a college project a have to send a sms from one modem to another. I am using a wavecom m1206b and also a wavecom wm02.
I must talk to them using a basic stamp 2. Basically i was wondering if it is possible to turn off the hardware flow control on the modem, or if not, could anybody make any suggestions on how correctly wire the serial cable to get sround this , i’ve tried a few configurations but to no avail.
I would love some help with this,
Regards Niall

In order to do that, you are going to have to study the AT Commands Manual - in that manual you will also find the commands necessary to set flow control

But, obviously, there’s a catch to that: you need the flow control correctly set before you can send the AT command to alter it!

Yes it is - see above
