Setting up a paging system from the AS/400

I have been trying to set up a paging system from my AS/400 and am have a hard time. We don't want to purchase packaged software. Is there and easy way to do this?


If you want a simple paging system that sends numeric pages only, you can read most of what you need in the communications programming guide in the AS/400 library. The examples will show you how to configure lines, controllers and devices. Once configured, you must write a program to make the modem ignore the connection and go "QUIET". You then send the dial-tone string to the modem followed by the # sign, and you are done. You might check some of the open source, freeware and shareware 400 sites.
