Dial-up between 2 computers

7 posts in this topic

I have recently been given a Toshiba Sattelite s1620cds where i installed windows 98 SE with service pack 3 and it's working great. However, it only have a dial-up port in order to get to the internet. It also has 2 PCMCIA slot.

I also have a P4 where I have dual boot Windows 98SE SP3 and Windows XP SP3. in this one, i have LAN and a Internal DialUp modem as well.

My question is: Is there any way to connect my laptop to my desktop using a dialup connection, and using the conncetion I have on my desktop? I have heard some things about accepting incoming calls in windows XP and Dial Up server in windows 98 bbut none of them work.

Any help would be apreciated! :lol:

I'm not entirely sure what configuration you're trying, but the obvious thing would be to get a PCMCIA Ethernet adaptor, then you could network your two computers together (simplest connection is using just a cross-over cable).

I have thought about it too, but I saw a tutorial where i could use my dial up modem to allow my SEGA Dreamcast to connect to the Internet using my connection in the other computer

Actually it is a very interesting approach. :thumbup

The given link is about haveing the Dreamcast as "client" and the Windows Machine (with both the dial-up modem AND the "broadband", let's say DSL connection, as "server").

Now, if I get it right you want the Satellite to become a "Dreamcast" :w00t: (client ;)) and the P4 become the "server".

So, *somehow* you must "translate" this set of instructions:

http://www.maturion.de/dreamcast/mterlouw/dcisp.htm

to the Satellite running Windows 98

And apply these sets of instructions:

http://www.maturion.de/dreamcast/mterlouw/trickwin.htm

http://www.maturion.de/dreamcast/mterlouw/inconect.htm

http://www.maturion.de/dreamcast/mterlouw/connect.htm

to the P4 machine.

BUT, there is the possibilty that one of the two modems (or both) have an issue with the (missing) phone line, so it is possible that you will need the "Modem Line Voltage Simulator". :unsure:

Have you made some tests with Hyperterminal (or similar)?

I have already tried to "translate" some definitons but one problem is: what number should i dial?? I have made all the things in my P4 in order that him can receive incoming calls.

And yes, I have tried HyperTerminal with both computers and i was able to establish a connection with my moblie phone.

666

(seriously, *any* number will do, the "number dialing" is only to make the modem connect).

You know, like ;)

Dial Up Number - You have to put in at least one digit here.

You have to find a way (look in the Windows docs or, more likely in the actual modem documentation, how to set the "blind dial", if by any chance the modem is waiting for a dial tone, it will wait "forever").

The sense of the suggestion with Hyperterminal was "beyond" your test with the mobile phone (making sure that each of the PC has a functional Hyperterminal and Modem, which is however a good idea :thumbup ), the point was if you could manage to connect the two PC's through Hyperterminal. (this would verify that there are no hardware or "hardware settings" issues or a "wrong" initialization string on either modem, the "AT&F0" sets the modem to "default" (factory), but different modems may have different "defaults")

And you should read again the pages you found, there won't be *any* call as you have not an actual telephone line and not even a "plain" simulator for it, let alone a simulator with ring generation (which is a rather comples electronic "box" or that you can buy for a few hundreds bucks :ph34r:).

So, it is pointless to set the "server" as "waiting for incoming calls":

Tricking Windows into Answering the Line

If we're going to get a Dreamcast Server running under Windows 2000/XP, the first thing we need to do is get Windows to do something it's not designed to do: answer the phone line without it actually ringing. In Windows 9x, this is easy, although it involves a little snooping around in the registry. Well this version of Windows is a bit stubborn (read: a pain in the a**), so we'll be going through a few more hoops to get the operating system to behave nicely and play along with us.

....

etc.

Correct, this is a modem setting, so it's the modem manual you'll need.

For an Ambient chipset, it's set by the "ATX" command. Here's an extract from the manual :

Xn Result code type :

X0 Enables result codes 0-4; disables detection

of busy and dial tone

X1 Enables result codes 0-5, 10, and above; disables

busy and dial tone detection

X2

Enables result codes 0-6 and 10 and above;

disables busy detection and enables dial tone

detection

X3

Enables result codes 0-5, 7, and 10 and

above; enables busy detection and disables

dial tone detection

X4 Enables result codes 0-7 and 10 and above;

enables busy and dial tone detection
