I have several old modems and am interested in using one for caller id and
voice functions - control with DTMF, answering machine...
To check them out I put them into an XP machine. One was a Creative
DI5630-30. It showed up as a device in hyperterminal but it did not show up
as having voice capability.
AT+FCLASS=? gave output of 0,1 (no 8).
It has a connector for connecting to a sound card. Apparently it used the
sound card for voice capability. I didn't load any drivers (and it didn't
ask for a driver).
The other is a HAL (Home automated living) HAL100PCI. When installed XP
said it found "simple communication conroller" and wanted a driver. It did
not show up until the driver was loaded. It then showed up as "HAL HCF V.90
PCI voice portal" and XP reported "found: unimodem full duplex device"
Hyperterminal then showed it with voice mode, caller ID, etc.
I would like to use one of these in my Linux box (Fedora 8) with vgetty.
Does anyone know if I will be able to get either of these going (without
major work - I am a linux newbie).
My other thought is to use 'soundmodem' a program that uses the soundcard to
decode caller ID and DTMF. I see there is some old misterhouse code for
this. Anyone familiar with this? Obviously this would require some
