This can be very easy or hard. It depends on some things
I can not estimate.

1. do this task need interrupt driven access to the com ports?
   If not, it is easy do do. If yes, you have more trouble.
   What interrupt is used for this emulated com3?

2. is it allso possible to acess the emulated modem under windows.
   For windows there are easy to use drivers accessable.
   E.g. with VB.
