• SEXPOTS v1.27 for Windows

    From Digital Man@VERT to All on Mon Mar 12 22:51:00 2012
    SEXPOTS (Synchronet External Plain Old Telephone System support) v1.27 for Windows has now been released: ftp://synchro.net/Synchronet/sexpots.zip

    Changes since the previous release (v1.25):

    1. Strings values in a .ini file are now terminated at the first white-space
    character
    - Fixes the problem with comments (preceded by semicolons) on "key = value"
    lines (as shown in the example sexpots.ini in the documentation)

    2. Modem is optionally re-initialized after ever 60 minutes of waiting for a
    caller
    - Works around problems with modems that require periodic reinitialization
    during lengthy periods of inactivity (e.g. to re-enable auto-answer)
    - Configurable with the [modem] ReInit value in the sexpots.ini file
    - Set to 0 to disable periodic modem reinitialization

    3. Now built with latest Microsoft tools, so requires MSVCR100.DLL

    Enjoy!

    SEXPOTS (Synchronet External Plain Old Telephone System support) v1.29 for Windows has now been released: ftp://synchro.net/Synchronet/sexpots.zip

    Changes since the previous release (v1.27):

    Implement modem command retries:
    - configurable via [modem] CmdRetry, default value is 2 retries
    - drops DTR, delays and then raises DTR before retrying modem commands

    Improved log output:
    - don't log COM Device value when passed live com handle/descriptor on cmdline - log COM Device value in modem command/response errors
    - more debug-related log output

    Fix modem re-initialization time-out (off by one):
    - ReInit value of 1 would result in reinit every 2 minutes of inactivity

    Added option for "manual answer":
    - New sexpots.ini [modem] keys:
    . Answer (default: "ATA")
    . Ring (default: "RING")
    . ManualAnswer (default: false)
