Ok, I got a winmodem. I understand that I can't launch duke from dos with this modem. But is there any reason why I can't connect in windows and then run duke as if I was running it through a null (serial ) modem??

I'll try to explain: when you install winmodem under Windows you
install driver of this device, then any modem-oriented !Windows!
program see this driver, that can communicate with device, and
by sending commands to this driver these programs initiates connect,
disconnect and information transfer. But, driver is not physical
device. Many drivers can map itself on some physical device, say
on COM3, or COM4, or COM5 or other, allowing by this emulate
hardware for other programs (and DOS-based). If your winmodem's
driver can do this, you need to change it in properties. But if
not, only Windows-based program calls can initialize winmodem.
Duke, as DOS-based program, can open modem port ONLY as physical
COMx device. It doesn't contain Windows-oriented code as Doom95 for
example. So that is why Duke can't communicate with winmodem driver.
