In the Modem Port Settings tab, select the Communication Mode you are using to connect to your modem from the drop-down menu. The options are:
- RS-232 – your modem is connected to the STS using the RS-232 cable.
- Ethernet – your modem is connected to the STS using the Ethernet cable.
- RRL Bridging – you have connected the modem to the Solinst STS Edge Telemetry System using the Ethernet cable, and have connected a Home Station RRL to the STS Edge using the RS-232 cable.

Ensure that you have configured your modem with the same communications and port setup you enter when programming the modem, including the Baud Rate, Data Bits, Parity, Stop Bits, Home Station static IP Address, and TCP Port Number. See Section 3.4. Update the modem port settings to match, if required.
When using the RS-232 Communication Mode, the Baud Rate must be 115200. When using the RRL Bridging Communication Mode, the Baud Rate must be 9600.
