A full working telephone line, so! This is much more I need. I wish only
test incoming modem call in Linux, using my notebook winmodem,
connected via wire to another modem. Maybe, there is some option AT*
which disable dial tone waiting, and so on.
But I do not know what happen, in the circuitery signals
side, if I cross the wire tx-rx, as usually we do for null-modem cable.

In other words: a serial-like connection, but using modem interface.

Ciao Sabina e ciao Franz

remember any. Would two negative ones do?       -- Woody Allen
