We have a two building campus connected with a T1 line.  In one of the buildings there is a PC which configures our AVAYA switch / Voice Mail.  This PC application supposedly only supports a dialup modem.  Can I add a NIC to this machine and "spoof" the applcation ino believing that I have dialed in?

Gotta love telcos... they're sooo 20th century! and now they want to but their traffic on our network! hrrmmff!

depends on if it's listening to the com port (probably) or running a ras (unlikely)
You could try http://www.pcmicro.com/comip
IF it's not manipulating the uart directly, as dos based applications are want to do.

Are you talking about using the PC in one building to configure a switch in the other building across your campus T1?  Or are you talking about configuring the switch that resides in the building that has the PC with the config software in the same building, but to do it from the other building?

Do you get what I'm asking? Are you trying to access the switch or the PC?  Is this a DOS app, a Windows app, or what?

If you are trying to access the PC, and the program has all of its functions available when you are sitting at that PC's keyboard, you should be able to use any of the several remote-control utilities that are available. If it is a Windows-based PC, I'd recommend you throw VNC on it, and on your PC in the other building.  There are several flavors of VNC available, and they're free.

If it is a DOS app, you'd need to get some old software that supports DOS-based remote control.  The best one I worked with was Close-Up by Norton-Lambert.

If it's Linux, then I don't know.  There probably is remote-control software for Linux, but I have not had the need to check.

Kewl.  Is it cross-platform or no?  Can you remote-control a Linux box from a Windows box and vice-versa?

Oh, by the way, Tim, you'll need to put a NIC in that PC and get it on your network...  Forgot to mention that.
