Honeywell Vista 15p Download Problems

Just thoght posting here would help me, so i have a Honeywell Vista 15P alarm panel with 2 keypads and the panel works ok its just i can’t download to it. I open the Compass downloader and go to communications, start it and the modem picks up, panel answers and it starts making tones. Seems to work just fine but then the modem just hangs up on the panel. Not sure what is causing this,things i have tried listed below.



different telephone power supplies

restarting computer

restarting panel

defaulting panel

re-installing the Compass software

different phone cord

different modem

re doing all the programming in compass software



Help would be greatly appreciated.

Did you try to program the panel from the keypad? If you are using a serial port, I would recommend checking the baud rate. That is what prevented me from programming my panels until I figured it out.
