JSI Tip 2567. My Windows 2000 Phone Dialer fails to connect?

Windows 2000 has a built in 20 second limit for the time to complete the dial. If the limit is exceeded, you receive

Failed: could not connect the call.

If you have inserted a , (comma), it generates a 2 second delay.

Remove any unneeded delays.
