Y-Modem file transfer aborts

Using the HP nc6400, O/S Windows XP Professional, and ProComm software configured for Y-Modem file transfer to Internet equipment in our Telco Central Office. All attempts to do a file transfer failed to an Aborted error message. Teleneting into this device allowed for file transfer. Contacted Hawking Tech Support via Email and this lead to no solution.

Coach Tim, Thanks for replying! This is the only unit that I have tried a file transfer with via the serial to USB adapter. Note that I can do a file transfer to this device using ProComm via Telnet without trouble. Thus, this does not seem to be a firewall issue. XP Pro has been kept up to date. I have not checked for the ProComm update,and will check. I was interfacing with Adtran DSL equipment which requires using Y-Modem transfer. Hawking Tech Support replied, "If it aborted, it may not supported the file transfer." [Comment: Seems to me their Tech Support should know?] I suspect their product will not permit Y-Modem transfer. Therefore, out IT Support suggested that I try another product/vender.

Otie, Is this the only unit having trouble? Have you checked your firewall settings? Not knowing the error messege I will just throw my 2 cents in... Have there been any updates to the XP Pro? Has there been any ProComm updates that may have affected the machine. You may need to reset and reconfigure the modem. There could even be some kind of interference at the Telco Office. Just some thoughts, Tim

Printer only sends paper to tray 1 when printing from procomm...

Sounds like a Procomm issue. Since I am not familiar with Procomm I can help you any further. But here is my analysis: All other application except for Procomm prints to tray 2. That is because all those applications use the setting as configured in your printer properties in Windows. What Procomm seems to be doing is trying to load a special paper from the manual feed tray, that is tray 1. You will have to check with in this Procomm application where you can change the printer properties so you can specify it to use tray 2 as the default. This is all within Procomm and has nothing to do with Windows nor your printer.

New os xp install can'tfigure out how to connect

XP will easily configure the internet system and get it working if you go to the control panel and click "Network" then "Troubleshoot".
If it does not work after that, then one of the accessories is bad or not compatible. It also makes a difference if you connect with a dial-up modem or if using an ethernet card. XP will detect a wireless signal also and configure your modem on newer laptops. Older systems may not have built-in wireless.

How to configure FTP server in windows xp prof ?

Setting up an FTP site Using Windows XP Professional Windows XP professional (as well as Windows 2000) includes Microsoft's IIS (Internet Information Server) which can be used to create an FTP site on your computer. It's a fair bit less complicated and less flexible than using some third-party FTP server software packages, so we will give you guides for setting up both. If you are using XP Home you will need to use third-party software. There is no way to publish an FTP site with the Home Edition of XP.
The first step is to check that IIS (Internet Information Services, Microsoft's web-server application) is configured properly.
Go to start\'control panel'\'add/remove programs'\ choose the 'add/remove windows components' button from the bar on the left. Highlight the item 'Internet information services (IIS)' If it is unchecked, check it, then click 'details.'

The components you will need are: 'common files,' 'file transfer protocol (FTP) service' and 'internet information services snap-in.' Uncheck any others then click next. IIS will configure itself, and you may be prompted for the XP CD.
