Application fails on another VAX platform?

» close window

The Question is:

I developed a program for a special halfduplex medem connection on a
micro-VAX. (The handshace goes over rts/cts).
When I installed and tested the program on a VAX4000/400, I had to state,
that that program run no longer correctly. I can make only the connection of
the two modems (CONNECT/12000 HDX). A futher data exchange does not take
place. What couldthe cause for
INFO: The micro-VAX had an DMF32 terminal device, the VAX 4000/400 a DHV11.

The Answer is :

  This could be an application programming bug, an OpenVMS-related bug, a
  hardware bug, or a simply lack of CTS/RTS support within the particular
  hardware configuration.
  Without significantly more detail, the OpenVMS Wizard cannot provide
  an answer.
  As a first step, follow topic 1661 for a discussion of basic programming
  synchronization requirements.  Then determine if the hardware supports
  this operation.  If it does, then use a breakout box or similar to track
  the activity on the serial line, and use the OpenVMS debugger and the
  OpenVMS documentation to track the activity of the application program.
