No Carrier when trying to modem sync

Problem:  When trying to sync from a remote site using a Palm Modem the following error message is displayed:  No Carrier.

Resolution:  The PC receiving the modem sync from remote location had the following settings in the Hot Sync Setup checked:

Local USB

Local Serial

Local Modem

The Local Serial connections was holding COM1 port open which blocks the Modem connection because the modem also uses COM1.  By unchecking the Local Serial the port is now opened allowing the connection to be made.
