Hi again Joe,
~ > ~ I have a unique need. I have a Windows server running software that ~ > ~ requires dozens of modems to make many phone calls every hour. ~ > ~ Managing all these modems has become difficult, as the number keeps ~ > ~ expanding. I've been told that the Cisco AS5350XM is a "high density ~ > ~ modem" solution, that would allow me to replace all my modems with ~ > ~ this one device.

~ Yes, the software I'm running is proprietary and quite finnicky. That ~ was my next question, I suppose. How do I make the internal modems on ~ the AS535XM appear as comm port devices on the server. You say ~ external software must be required. That may or may not jive with the ~ vendor's support clause. Hmmmm. ~ ~ Thanks though. ~ ~ :Bazooka-Joe
Yes, that's where my reference to Tactical Software comes in. They have several different shims (DialOut/EZ, COM/IP, TTYredirector, etc.) for different applications/OSes.
Good luck with your arrangements with your software vendor.
