I would like to control the out going calls, whether they are local or long distance, however what Im noticing is that whether the computer is on or off, or the modem is disabled or enabled the call still goes through ???  I would like to start by writing an .NET application that detects when one of the phones are off the hook and what numbers are being dialed... any ideas on where I can start with this ?

Thats an interesting one...  Well first and foremost i would figure out the hardware logistics of accomplishing a task such as this...  If your using a specific type of modem to do these types of things, figure out if the hardware has an API you can tap into to allow certain functions of the device.  Honestly though you may have to write some C / C++ to get something like this done as I dont know of anything built into .net to allow for this.  Anyone else have any clues?
