I don't see how the WINSOCK control would enter into this picture.  Just open the file and read the data.  Then display it on your screen.

You must hook WriteFile Api of modem driver.
This is only way, that I know.

I am not good specialist in Hooks, but as I know, you
must write your Dll (that makes Hook) and use SetWindows HookEx API to install chain with this Hook.
In Windows Doc you 'll find more about this.
As working example I recomend you FileMon utility
from  http://www.sysinternals.com/ntw2k/source/filemon.shtml
(with source  code)
....
Filemon monitors and displays file system activity on a system in real-time
...
Filemon makes all, that you need, but makes many other
things , too...
