in reply to Help With Custom War Dialer

Presuming your dialing modem has a fax modem, you might see if you could find a wintendo version of something like hylafax. Baring that, you could look for what AT commands to send your fax modem to make it dial as if sending a fax and see if the other end answers to that correctly.

Update: After re-reading that I wasn't exactly clear. What I meant was using something like hylafax to try and send a fax to each of your discovered phone numbers and see if it successfully delivers it or not.

    This may not be desirable as you could be sending a large number of test faxes ie. scanning a modem rack to see which are configured as fax machines.

    Ideally you would want to be able to drop the line after the initial detection phase.

    Just some random thoughts
