I've developped a C++ classes to access easily modem via serial drivers.
Now i have to pilot a PCMCIA modem.
I look at PC Card Manager 3.0 but see no way to get a driver referencenumber taht i can use with standard FSWrite/FSRead
Do someone can help me to find the good method to use a PCMCIAmodem in the same way as serial one.

PCMCIA modems are CTB compatible and the driver can be opened in the same way as you access a serial modem.
You can download a snippet from Apple that shows how to find all the serial ports on your Mac. (inc. dataport, modemport, printer prt, uppercard slot, lower card slot etc.etc.)
ftp://dev.apple.com/devworld/./Sample_Code/Snippets/Communications_Toolbox/FindSerialPorts.sit.hqx

The example returns the driver and port names.

This way you can be sure your looking at the correct slot (the user could have put the modem in upper or lower etc.)
