Yesterday evening I made my own serial cable and ran MFD Tools 2. Last night I had SecureCRT running at the "bash-2.02#" prompt.
Today I setup my PC to accept the call from my Tivo and route it to the Internet. I am still in the guided setup and at the 'Test Phone Connection' screen. I used a dial prefix of ",#296." I passed the 'Preparing' and 'Dialing' but fail at the 'Connecting' section.
I get the following error: "Failed. Service unavailable."
In my 'Network Connections' I see <Unauthenticated User> pop up when TiVo tries to connect while making the Test Call. I double clicked on the <Unauthenticated User> to show the Status of the request and the clicked on 'Details' to show me the assigned IP addresses for client and server. Which happens to be the same IP address as my computer.
I tried running SecureCRT but get "Unabe to open serial port COM1: Access denied." But I think that's because I setup my PC to accept calls from my Tivo. This is where I am stuck. Can someone plese help me?
Thanks in advance!!!
