I bought a USB interfaced Dial-Up modem in the hope I could use it to
send Faxes (I had need to recently) and to have emergency internet
Plug the thing into XP/Vista/W7 (and XPPro in a VM) , 'Found new
hardware, ready' and the modem diags can interrogate it ok. I can also
talk to it via Hyperterminal (also in Vista / W7 using HT from XP) and
setup a dial-up internet connection (tested ok).
The box says it's a 'Pluscom 56k V.92 USB2.0 Fax Modem and Mint
reports it as:
lsusb: Bus 002 Device 002: ID 047e:2892 Agere Systems, Inc. (Lucent)
Systems Soft Modem.
Now I know it's a softmodem but it does say it's supported by Linux on
the box and there is a Linux folder on the CD so is that possible?
If so, is there a simple GUI terminal that should talk to it please as
the nearest I've got is CuteCom and that didn't seem to (but then I
don't really know what I'm doing with all this).
