I don't understand what you meant with "the telephone will return a code according to input code that it gets from the user"?

If you want to create a phone answering machine in C#, you will probably have to use TAPI or something similar to communicate with your modem. Next part will be to handle audio (record/play messages), but try to get somewhere with this first part before doing that.

Try Googling for some samples (e.g. CodeProject: TAPI 3.0 Application development using C#.NET. Free source code and programming help, Software Search).

Thank you for answering!

I meant that I need code that support something like this:
when the user dial to the telephone (manually - not from the computer ),
the user will dial a code to the telephone and the telephone will play sounds (as a numbers that make the code I want the user to get according to the code he had inserted) .

I don't know how to do it with TAPI .

any help will be wellcome.

Ok, so in other words, you want to "intercept" dialed numbers (without letting them through the telephone line), and then send another sequence of numbers depend on the dialed numbers?

I once did something like that using a microcontroller with DTMF support, but I haven't done such thing using only a modem and a PC, sorry. It might be possible using TAPI, but I am not sure, sorry.

Thanks a lot!

It is almost exactly what I need.
I want the user to call to the telephone line and to dial numbers manually.

And the main issue I have to implement is the telephone service as you described well.

is TAPI support something like this?

I think TAPI and a special (or regular maybe) modem can do this.
Capturing and playback of "touch-tones" is what it sounds like to me that you want.
