using other machine's modem

Hello everybody,

Is there a way to use modem on machine A from machine B?

We have computer A with a modem and this program named Witerm (bought
from wilmers.com) which uses good old dial-up modem on COM port to
connect to some GSM stations which then tell him what is speed of
wind. Then I have computer B which doesn't have a dial-up modem and
which is connected with computer A by TCP/IP LAN.

Now we would like to move our program to computer B. Our program does
not use IP for communicating so we cannot just route traffic through
computer A. What we need to do is make program on computer B use modem
on COM port of computer A. Is that even possible?

Regards,
nick

I suppose you could do this with ICS, but why don't you just install a PCI
modem in computer B? Or use an external modem attached to computer B? That
would seem simpler to me. You can buy a PCI modem for under $30. I haven't
checked out the prices of external modems for years but they certainly
aren't that expensive.

Hello,
Send me your software to analyze his working.
If his accesses use the windows API it is possible to use an COM
emulator via LAN.
But if his accesses are direct in the material layer that is more
difficult.
Send me your zip program at (e-mail address removed)
Bye
