Modem pick-up options
Posted on 1998-09-24
I have an 56k internal modem (Diamond SupraExpress 56i Sp + Intl) installed in an NT 4.0 Server. I use it to dial-out to my ISP using dial-up networking and all is fine.
I have setup RAS to receive incoming calls to the modem. This also works fine, the modem picking up calls after 1 ring.
My problem is as follows: I only have 1 external telephone line which I wish to use for both my voice calls (phone) but also for RAS sessions (to accept incoming RAS calls via the server). At the moment, any incoming call (voice or data) is picked up by the modem after 1 ring. I have no chance of picking it up if it is a usual phone call.
Is there any way to delay the modem from picking up right away? Is there any way to distinguish voice from data calls?
Any help much appreciated.
