DEVICE.LOG does not capture modem commands, what can I do?

A. When you use a Unimodem the device.log no longer captures the command however you can create an alternate log file to capture the modem commands:

  1. Start the Modems control panel applet (Start - Settings - Control Panel - Modems)
  2. Select the modem for which a log file should be created
  3. Click Properties
  4. Click the Connection tab
  5. Click Advanced
  6. Select the 'Record a Log File' check box. There is no need to restart the computer

The log file will be created in the %systemroot% directory with name MODEMLOG_<modem>.TXT.
