This message is applicable if anyone is having problems connecting to RAS on W2K/XP using the Accuvote-TS.
It was found that by default, a connection to RAS requires two or three rings before a connection is established. The TS itself only sends one ring for every attempt to connect to RAS. In order to remedy this situation, the registry must be edited to tell Windows a specified number of rings before picking up.
NOTE: This only is applicable to Windows 2000/XP
In the following path:
Add the following REG_DWORD value:
Modify this value to 1
Now the amount of rings before pickup should only be one.
You must also ensure all other settings are correct such as correct baud, parity, flow control, and proper authentication setup.
