Question about Arris SURFboard SB4200 Modem

Is it possible

Hi Ginko,

Just got a question, I know it is possible for computer 2 to get on the internet by dialling into computer 1 via phone to get on the internet through computer 1's DSL connection. I just cant remember how, do you have any idea how to do it? If im not mistaken you have to bridge the DSL and dial up modem somehow.

    The computer 2 by the way is in another location. Im trying to set this up so that I can have the DSL setup at home and then when I do field work I can access my network as well as the internet through any phone line without having to signup to dial up or setup any internet connection at that location.

Hi, yes it is possible but it is not a good solution. If you are using Windows XP try configuring network using network wizard to configure as "this computer connects to the internet through another computer".
This setting does not always work straight away as you usually have to set up firewall.
AWith this set up the computer connected to the modem will act as a proxy, repeating the signal on the other computer.
This solution will make navigation slower, force you to keep low firewall defences.
Best thing to do is buying a modem or modem router and build network using a router.

    Sorry, I did not see you where using hyperterminal, thought you were connecting by ethernet.
    If you use hyperterminal you need a management software to use one of the computer as a proxy, and the whole thing, if it work will be extremely slow when you try to access internet from remote computer at home.
    More than Hyperterminal you need to build a VPN between the two computers and set the remote one as proxy server.

How to deactivate fixed dialling


Fixed dialing is a network-based service which should not be active unless you specifically ask them for it, perhaps it has been activated on your account by mistake and another customer is wondering why it doesn't work for him.

You would have to get in touch with your network operator to deal with this.

However, it may be possible to activate/deactivate it through the phone if your network supports this option. But requires a Pin2 code that can ONLY be provided by your network

You can go to Contacts > Options > SIM Numbers > Fixed Dial Contacts > Options > deactivate fixed dialling > Enter Pin 2 code.

Otherwise, put your SIM card in another phone if possible to see if you get the fixed dial issue still. If yes, please contact your network for assistance.

Good luck.

After many years have misplaced the instruction manual for our Vista 200. Need to know how to set up names and numbers for the automatic dialling feature.

First, ensure the display is bright enough. If it is not, press successively on the "Brightness key" that is located on the top of the phone above the "Memory key". You have 8 brightness settings. Note that the "Brightness key" has no label.

You are now ready to start programming.

1. Press the "Memory key". It is labelled "Memory" and is located above the "Memory keys" numbered 1 to 10 on the right-hand side of the phone.

2. Press the "Memory key" you want to program. (1 to 10)

3. Enter the number you want to program using the "Dialling keys"
1, 2, 3,
4, 5, 6,
7, 8, 9,
*, 0, #

4. Once the phone number is entered, press the "Memory key" again.

5. Now enter the "Name" for the phone number you just entered. To do this, you press the "Dialling keys" as follows:
For A press the "2" key once,
For B press the "2" key 2 times,
For C press the "2" key 2 times,
For Q press the "7" key 2 times,
For Z press the "9" key 4 times.
Use the same for all letters.

To go to the next letter, press the "Right arrow key".
For a space, press the "Right arrow key".

6. Once the name is entered, press the "Memory key" one last time. You are done.

7. To test it, press the "Memory key" you just programmed.

This will not work if you iPhone is jailbroken .
You must have SSH already installed.
Before you begin, make sure your iPhone is connected with your 30pin USB to your computer(Computer must have connection to internet),
and that SSH is turned on, and make sure EDGE is turned on.

What you will need:

3. Double click, or execute, file 1_start_ssh_tunnel.cmd - it opens a tunnel between your phone and your computer (do not close the window, you can reduce, postpone or scale down). Remember the phone must be connected to a computer via usb.
This image has been resized. Click this bar to view the full image. The original image is sized 502x182 and weights 6KB.

4. Next set a proxy for EDGE on your phone.
execute winscp.cmd, navigate to folder / private / var / preferences / SystemConfiguration
You'll need to transfer the file preferences.plist to you computer, and edit, or paste over, the Proxy area.

5. Once edited transter preferences.plist back to your iphone and overwrite the existing file.
6. Click the Options button in ccproxy, and click the "Advanced", then click the tab Networks, then untick with "disable external users" save and go back to main ccproxy window.

Printer problem

I think I had a chat with you , here is trancription:

You are now in session with bazza1963
ginko says:

ginko says:
are you there?

ginko says:
seems you need to re-install driver softwar for your printer, do you have printer disks? and which version of operative system are you using (Windows XP, Vista, etc)

ginko says:
I will try to find drivers for windows, give me some minute

ginko says:
Here is Driver download page for your printer, start downloading the one for for your system:

ginko says:

ginko says:
Here is installation guide, same as the one provided with printer:

ginko says:

ginko says:
download the above driver software.

ginko says:
is the same as the one distributed in disk coming with printer , if you have the disk you can use the disk

ginko says:
Once you downloaded software do the following:

ginko says:
1 disconnect printer from PC

ginko says:
2 expand and install downloaded software, alternatevely use the disk provided with the printer. Do this with printer disconnected.

ginko says:
3 when asked from installation, or after installation, connect the printer to your computer using the USB cable , not the network (ethernet) cable

ginko says:
4 the printer will be recognised in Windows, if it does not restart the PC

ginko says:
You must use an usb cable to use this printer as a local printer.

ginko says:
You may need a router to use the ethernet cable (one similar to thick phone cable) provided with the printer

ginko says:
therefore ensure you are using the right cable

ginko says:
here is an example of usb cable, sometimes it is not provided with the printer, have a look,. This is the right cable you need to use to connect this printer to local computer, the other one is for network

ginko says:
check on how it looks like and ensure you are using the right one

ginko says:
let me know if you need further help, I am not receiving much feedback from you

ginko says:
Best regards

ginko says:
Also check under printers in vista that you have this printer installed and that it is the default print

I could not get any feedback from you , do not know if there was something wrong with chat software
