DUNS ERROR 676
676 - The line is busy.
All versions of Windows - This error can occur if:
You are dialing the wrong number
There is a problem at your ISP or in the telephone network
You have voice-mail or other custom calling feature that produces a stutter
You haven't specified the proper country settings for your modem and the
number you are dialing, or your modem doesn't support the country you are in.
If you include the disable call waiting code in your dialing, and your phone
line does not support call waiting; or, if you have call waiting, but your phone
company doesn't support the disable call waiting code.
Check the settings for the DUNS
Connectoid you are using.
If you have voice-mail or other custom-calling feature that
produces stuttered dial-tone, you may be able to eliminate the problem by
disabling dial-tone or busy detection: Add x to extra
settings to disable busy and dial-tone detection; add x2 to extra
settings to disable only busy detection.
If your modem doesn't offer support for your country,
disabling dial-tone/busy detection (x in extra settings) might work (only
if tone or pulse dialing for selected country is compatible with yours).
Use modem's speaker to listen to connection attempt:
Make sure it dials, and make sure you do not hear a busy signal.
Examine Modemlog to see what number
is actually being dialed. (If # dialed is not displayed, adding E1 to
extra settings may help.)
Try dialing with pulse instead of tone; Try increasing the
tone duration. [ s11=120 ]
Windows NT - Error 676 line busy is reported when you
should receive a 'No Dial Tone' 680 error. This was first correct in SP6. See MS
Windows 98 - Depending upon the method you use to
connect to your ISP, this error may occur even if you have configured automatic
re-dial when the line is busy. See MS
