Odd, that. Amisoft had a few clients whose various modems (Banksia,
Maestro, others) which would talk to anything else except their
Netcomms, and the problem got worse with newer firmware in the Netcomms.
Smileys have LightSpeed, which I have heard panned by several people but
never had a problem with (except when the boss there plugs a 12VAC power
supply into their 9VDC socket...).
