Configuration of DOS/Windows 3.1x-based data/fax applications running under Windows 95
|I am running Windows 95, but
using DOS/Windows 3.1x-based communications and/or fax
program(s)". [Like Trumpet WinSock and/or WinFax
Lite]. I have installed the Option Windows 95 driver.
What parameters have to be inserted into the DOS/Windows 3.1x-based software for it to work OPTIMALLY in Windows 95?

|The Option Windows 95 driver is used
to set up the modem when it runs under Windows 95.
However, Windows 3.1x-based data communications and fax software applications do not generally use the same specifications and resources as Windows 95-based applications. They generally use & need their own initialisation strings and parameters.
Windows 3.1-based data communications and fax software running under Windows 95 will - except for the COM port allocation - generally override the standard Option Windows 95 driver and hence the standard Windows 95 driver-based Initialisation string.
Although you alter the settings within the Windows 3.1x-based application, you will generally not need to alter the default (initialisation) Windows 95 settings provided by the Option Windows 95 driver. All the appropriate settings can be done within the applicable Windows 3.1x-based application.
So, as far as the Windows 3.1-based software is concerned, you MUST enter the recommended Option modem initialisation string in the appropriate modem setup section of that Windows 3.1-based data or fax software application if there is no Application-Specific Option driver available for that application.
The recommended initialisation string to be placed within the setup section of your Windows 3.1-based communications and/or fax software running under Windows 95 is:
