     I have just bought an SX-212 1200
baud modem....but there seems to be one
problem.....



     As I have gone through the usenet
menu (alt.) I keep getting the word
  "OK" and then no response to input
I have typed in, I am using the sx-212
version of 850 Express.

*** Answered by Michael Current, aa700:

Ah-ha!  I know exactly what you're talking about!

If you press three pluses in a row you put your modem in local command
mode, where it gives the "OK" prompt.  To return online to what you were
doing, enter the modem command "ato".

Whoever designed the Free-Net software wasn't using a Hayes-compatible
modem!
