Making a Call

It has no difference for communications applications to make a call using either hardware modem or virtual modem.

Nevertheless, before using virtual modem be sure:

1. Communications application (dialer) must be configured to use virtual COM port (or virtual modem, if it uses TAPI).

2. Specify remote virtual modem you want to make a call to. It can be accomplished in the following ways:

a. Enable Connect to this remote address for all "outgoing calls" option in properties of the virtual modem. Refer to Adding/Removing Virtual Modem for details.

b. Compose special phone number. Refer to Phone Number Composition section.

3. Virtual modem must be created on the remote computer and configured to accept incoming calls.

4. Remote computer must be accessible over the network.
