When I checked it out, the modem "received bytes" do not match with what I get in the form of a file. What could be the reason? I use an internal modem with Win2000.

Remember that all info exchanged between your machine and outter world is based in certain "protocoles". That means that you need some extra bytes to make things run smoothly, information such as headers, CRC values, checksum controls and an infinity of several others.

That's why not only received, but sent too, information is ALWAYS bigger than what you could expect.

I've uploaded a 2000-byte file to some site; modem transmitted almost 4 TIMES that amount...
