May not configure modem via SAM
- New modem configuration procedure
The method for configuring Modems via SAM apparently has changed. Using the OS1.8/0 ES2.9/0 Users Guide (pg. 2-48), the directions say to type in the baud rate for the port. Once the speed has been entered, pressing the OK button will crash the SAM Add Modem GUI (SAM is still running, however the port configuration you just attempted will fail). The error dialog will state:
The trick to successfully configuring the modem ports is NOT to type the speed into the field, but select the Speed box and select the proper speed from the popup dialog. Typing into the field will not work, selecting from the dialog will work. In all previous versions of the OS, typing was acceptable. This is a new, undocumented HP feature.
