Report by ExPLIT [1]

Got my Quatech SSP-100 PCMCIA Card recognized with PCMCIA Socket Services 8.0.

PCMCIA Controller Driver, which I successfully used is Intel SS2PCIC.SYS, commercial Driver APSoft SSPCIC.SYS also recognizes my PCMCIA Controller Ricoh R5C476 II but I got it not working with it.

The magic trick was in this line:

BASEDEV=PCMCIA.SYS /V /R:500

While the ArcaOS Socket Services 5.0 need the /R:500 to operate in the 5.0 Version of socket Services (Default one is 2.0) in the newer IBM Socket Services 8.0 this switch should be removed.

After I removed /R:500 switch, I got the message, that the Card Services Version are 8.0 and suddenly the SSP-100 was recognized as a Modem (COM1), got Power and seems to work.
