We have been using an mITC sofware with a dialogic fax/voice board on a desktop to recieve clock-ins and clock-outs from employee: recently our system went down and I have been looking for hardware but realize that its pretty much outdated technology;;for example its really hard to find an ISA mother board/desktop/server etc. So if this tech is outdated what are the up to date options for recieving clockins/outs from employees through land lines...thanks...

Google Novatime or Nova1000 it is a timeclock software that supports dial up (remote) time clocks that use scan cards, it also has a desktop client for local PC's.  But for your question you will use the time clock, the software uses a modem on the server PC to dial up the number of the time clock and down load the punches to the server, exactly what you are looking for.  If you don't use a dedicated phone # then you have to have someone on the remote end connect the time clock and it has to be programmed to answer the ring before anything else on the circuit ie faxmachinme (or unplug fax also before polling the time clock.  The software supports multiple remote time clocks.
