Troubleshooting DUAT Windows 3.05

If DUAT Windows 3.05 does not work properly, it is most likely a Communication port problem. To solve the problem:

  • Try switching from COM 1 through COM 4.
  • If you are still unsuccessful, try adjusting the Modem speed.
Some computers have up to COM 5 or higher. However, DUAT Windows 3.05 will NOT work on those ports. Only use COM Ports 1 through 4.
