4. FAX MODEM ENABLER

The enabler, MDMEN.EXE is used to initialize the modem when you are not
using Card Services.  You can use the Enabler as DOS command or DOS driver.
It means that you can load the enabler from the DOS prompt or put it into the
AUTOEXEC.BAT or put it into the CONFIG.SYS to load it everytime you start your
computer.

        MDMEN [/COM=m] [/IRQ=nn] [/SLT=n]

        where
            COM=m  Specify the COM port number (m=1 -- 3). Default is 2.
            IRQ=nn Specify the interrupt request number in decimal. Default is
                       4 for COM1, 3 for COM2, 4 for COM3, 3 for COM4.
            SLT=n  Specify the slot number the Fax/Modem card plugged.
                       Default is auto-detection.


5. TECHNICAL NOTES FOR ENABLER

   (1)  Most communication software follows the Interrupt settings and
        I/O address settings as shown below:

                        IRQ Number        I/O Address

               COM1:        4                 3F8
               COM2:        3                 2F8
               COM3:        4                 3E8
               COM4:        3                 2E8

   (2)  If you are using Windows 3.1X, you can change the IRQ under the
        CONTROL PANEL - PORTS - ADVANCED dialog box. If you change the
        COMPORT and IRQ under Windows, be sure that it matches the parameter
        in the MDMEN.EXE.


   (3)  Two COM ports cannot share an interrupt even the default value is
        the same for example COM1 and COM3 or COM2 and COM4. If your system has
        COM1 and COM2 already, you may run MDMEN with /COM=3 and /IRQ=n where
        n is an available interrupt number other than 3 or 4. When you run a
        modem application program, the COM prot number and interrupt number
        specified at application should be to same with the parameter specified
        at MDMEN.EXE.
