WhatsUp Gold - Cannot initialize modem

Product: Version: Platform:
WhatsUp Gold 8.0x and earlier Win98,NT,Win2000,XP

Question/Problem: So far I love WhatsUp Gold, but I can't get the paging function to work. It can't initialize my USR 56k External Sportster modem.

Answer/Solution: WhatsUp Gold will not share the modem with any other program; it must be a dedicated local modem to function with WhatsUp Gold. WhatsUp Gold will not use the TAPI driver with the modem. Make sure any other program that listens for connections or uses the modem is not set to use that port, especially RAS or modem pooling.
