The following is a list of enhancements and fixes that have been added to the Remote Access Service (RAS) version 1.1a client software for MS-DOS, Windows 3.1, and Windows for Workgroups 3.1.

  • Added support for hardware (RTS\CTS) flow control to VCOMMIOD module.
  • The MODEMS.INF file has new modems added to reflect additions made in Windows NT RAS.
  • MCOMP.INF is a new file similar to MODEMS.INF. However, it has hardware flow control, error correction and modem data compression enabled for most modems.
  • This version includes a fix for problems with Internal modems (VCOMMIOD).
  • RAS Phone now has extra response wait time for X.25 links.
  • RAS Phone retains the client name in the dialing dialog box.
  • The README file is removed and incorporated into the Windows NT 3.1 Client README file.
  • RAS Phone/RAS Dial allow extra time for modem response strings (similar to the append macro functionality in Windows NT RAS, but works automatically).

NOTE: RAS 1.1a does not support Software Compression used by Windows NT RAS. Only modem compression is supported in RAS version 1.1a.
