Are there any non-standard/undocumented things to try (setting up BBS)
Should this work now with the latest firmware? I don't seem to get any further with it.

Using the init string ATH0X1V0 as you suggested 05-09-2021, 05:22 AM. Using the archive which you also used. Didn't change anything in config (the main settings being MAX BAUD 1200, LOCKED BAUD 1200 Answer with ATA: NO)

Running Paragon with >> Paragon 1 B9600 L9600 << (EXCEPT I'm using 1200) like you mentioned in your post 05-07-2021, 01:16 AM

Modem and Paragon are communicating properly, the commands seen on the WiModem OLED are like they should so baudrate seems to be ok.

Modem is connected directly to A1200

I dial it and this is what I get:

WimOdem oled -> incoming call, connected
Caller sees CONNECT 1200
BBS sends "1200 baud connection established on line #1", and this can be seen on both computers (BBS and caller)

And after thinking for 2-3 seconds the BBS thinks it's a good time for +++ATZ (the +++ can be seen on the caller side too) rather than displaying the welcome.txt and the caller gets NO CARRIER. Feels like it thinks the caller has quit.

Tried also disabling the modem auto-answer (adding S0=0 in the modem init string AND set up Answer with ATA: YES in the config) then the BBS says "Ringing... ATA" (WiModem oled telling it's connected so the BBS really answers, the caller also gets a connect) and sends +++ATZ right after that.

God knows where I would be now if I had been as eager and persistent in the school...
