"No RAS Capable Devices" yet I have on

By DaveDyke ·
I am new here and don't know what the points are for, but I put this one up for all (but one) that I have.

We have a NT Terminal Server (4.0 SP4) with Citrix 1.8 on it. External USR 56k Modem.

RAS will not install because it does not see a "RAS Capable Device", yet NT sees the Modem just great. I can get to COM1 via DOS (i.e. "ECHO ATDT >COM1" works like a champ.)

HyperTerminal blows chunks when it runs. Ditto with anything else TAPI. No remote access software has even been on it(i.e. pcAnywhere, etc..). Citrix works like a champ too - except for the modem, which depends on RAS.

Ultimate goal: Get the dang thing to let TAPI applications running in client sessions recognize USR modems hung off 9x or NT PC's so they can dial into remote networks. (Yes, the Citrix client allows local TAPI redirection and local COM port redirection as well.)

Here is what I have done thus far - all to no avail.

Installed the 128 bit SP4 (originally it was just the standard WTSRVoff the CD). No cha

By the looks of it, NT will let you echo a command to the modem just by sending the text through the com port. If hyperterminal is not doing the business, try reinstalling the modem into NT.

What you might wish to do, where the No RAS capable device message is concerned, is to remove RAS from Networking Properties, remove the modem you are having the difficulty with. Reinstall RAS through Network Properties and let RAS detect the modem. You will have to reboot after yanking the modem and RAS, but it may work.

I have run into this error quite frequently when transferring an image of one of our dial-up PCs. For some reason, the RAS and modem have to be removed.

So, remove the modem first, then RAS and reboot. Install RAS and let RAS detect the modem. You may have to double check that the modem is NOT set to Plug N' Pray with the Jumpers. You must tell the modem which IRQ and COMM to use, then RAS should see it.

Good Luck,

In my opinion, you need to reinstall Citrix 1.8 rather than RAS or any other SP. While installing Citrix you have the option to install TAPI modem setup. There even if you dont have the modem setup in NT [let alone RAS] it should detect it and from thereon configure...
Hope it helps
Good luck.

I've seen this using RAS before and the fix was to make sure NT saw it as "Standard Modem" instead of using USR drivers. This fixed my problem. Only thing is it will run as a 33.6 or 28.8 modem instead of 56k.

Not all of your request got posted it cuts off during your explanation of things you have tried.

As a first solution, change the com port to COM2 and try it from there.

If the "serial mouse" device is loaded it might be defaulting to COM1 and not allowing COM1 to be used for RAS.

If you are using UPS software to monitor a UPS it might be using COM1 or COM3 which shares the COM1 IRQ settings.

You might have something else using the same IRQ as COM3 which is the same as COM1.
