Hi
try the following dll's one of them should be able to return a value telling you which com port is being used for the modem
Declare Function GetCommModemStatus Lib "kernel32" Alias "GetCommModemStatus" (ByVal hFile As Long, lpModemStat As Long) As Long
Declare Function GetCommProperties Lib "kernel32" Alias "GetCommProperties" (ByVal hFile As Long, lpCommProp As COMMPROP) As Long
Declare Function GetCommState Lib "kernel32" Alias "GetCommState" (ByVal nCid As Long, lpDCB As DCB) As Long



 hope it helps
cheers craig
