    I cannot figure this issue out...hopefully; someone can clarify this for me.

    I've got a PCI mini (serial) and attempting to configure my serial configuration so I can connect to my panel...BUT it won't work?

    I've got a gem p9600 and using quickloader 5.4.2. The chip on my system is V9. My modem on the PC is on com 2. Com 1 is where the pci/mini port should be connected to (i'm assuming as it is the only port open).

    When I hit port test, nothing! I've tried this on two different computers thinking that maybe it was a computer issue...but still no go.

    The modem type I'm leaving set at is "standard" as none that I actually have is listed. I'm assuming this is ok.

    Modem location is set to "internal",

    Without these settings, I cannot connect to my panel...any ideas of what I'm possibly missing??

    Is there some sort of incompatibility? Should I be using a USB connection type instead??

    Also, check your system and your bios to make sure the port is activated.
    It may be turned off.

    What kind of modem?

    Hmm. Are you planning to use the modem to connect to the panel over the telephone line or will you be using the PCI-MINI for direct
    connection. The latter is faster and (usually) easier.
