You have two possible solutions.

1) Write a Winsock program.  This uses TCP/IP for the transport but can be transparently encapsulated by a serial protocol (PPP) using the dial-up network.

2) Use the serial functions:  Call CreateFile() with a "COMx" argument (x = number of serail port) to open the port, ReadFile() and WriteFile() to receive/send data, etc.  To modify the port and communications parameters use SetCommState(), BuildCommDCB(), SetCommConfig(), etc.  To monitor communication events use SetCommMask() and WaitCommEvent().  Search your online help for "Using the Communications Functions" for some sample code and see the COMM sample application that comes on your C++ CD.

Oh, the error codderction algorithm is usually V.42bis but it is handled transparently by the modem.

Oops, sorry.  V.42bis (or MNP5) is the compression.  V.42 is the error correction.
