Creating a batch file to manualy dial a modem
Posted on 2005-05-09
I would like to create a batch file to manauly dial a number on my modem that is connected to a linux box running e-smith 6.0. The reason for this is so that I can turn on and off my call divert while out of the office. i need to dial 161 then wait for maybe a second then hang up to turn off I dial 160 again wait for the tone maybe a second then hang up. Ideally i want to be able to make a batch file that I can call froma web / wap page but intially i would be happy if I could get the commands to do it from a command. I am runny Hyla fax so the modem is always waiting for a call so might need to bypass this some how.
Strange request but i don't want to have to pay the telecom provider more money to have the remote service set up, currently can only be done form the line that has the divert on it??
Thanks in advance
