DialOut server / Modem server on win98 for LAN client to dial out
Posted on 2004-09-04
I am trying to share my 56K Voice modem over my LAN so that my other networked computers can dial-out AS IF they had their own physical modem.
I want applications on client computers to be able to use the localy configured modem as if it was physically there when in fact they are dialing through my Voice modem wich is on my WINDOWS 98 station.
Ex.: I want to use hyperterminal, winfax or a simple DUN connection on a client computer and tell it to use the modem installed, lets say on COM4, to dial-out. This modem will actually be the modem on my win98 station patch through the clients via a virtual port or something.
From what I read, I would need to transform my 98 station into a dialout/modem server with the aid of a port redirection software or something like that...
My 98 station is a P150 with 40MB of RAM, so nothing too fancy pls.
any suggestions on how to do so?
