Dailing modem.


I need to dail a modem from python and disconnect it again. Is there a pythonic way of doing this? Life is just too short for fiddling with the complexity of TAPI via COM. But if you do have a TAPI-way of doing this, please share.

Help will be welcomed greatly!

You can actually open up a file called 'COM1' or 'COM2' (or any other
com ports) and do writes to them without any win32 extensions (reads are
another matter entirely). There are tricks so that you're not trying to
open the port with both Python and some other app, but as long as your
secondary application doesn't have a hold, you can send both 'ATDT
<phone number>\r\n' and '+++ATH\r\n', for desired "dial then hangup"

I wanted to make a Java application which would dial a telephone number using the modem. When the person on the other end lifts up the telephone (answers the phone), the application should start playing an audio file(eg. .wav file). The approach I took was using the Java Communications API(javax.comm.). As my modem is connected to the serial port on my computer I send AT commands to make the phone call (ATDT2222222). This is working...

My D-Link DSL-302G modem/router has a real-time clock whose settings are volatile. To avoid hand keying the date/time via the modem's JS interface, I wonder if there is a way to copy the JS code to the hard drive and modify it to automatically retrieve the PC's date/time. I could then add the hacked JS page to my browser's bookmarks. I've already successfully modified and adapted other modem menus, but I don't know how to go about this...

Hello everybody, in my application I'd need to know if a com port is a modem or not (and eventually its description and if it is a null modem). I get the list of com ports available with: string portList = System.IO.Ports.SerialPort.GetPortNames(); and then i set a port object like this: System.IO.Ports.SerialPort sPort = new System.IO.Ports.SerialPort(portList); Is there some property of the serial port who tells me indirectly it is a...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
