Modem

hi folks,
i am looking for a analog modem to use it with a solaris9 sparc mashine. as far as i know, solaris communicates with the modem using AT-commands. so do i need a special modem for solaris or just a modem? i am open for everything. PCI-modem, seriell modem, usb modem. what are you using? i would be great if the vendor would provide driver or configuration examples.

thanks a lot
regards PRESSY

I just use a standard serial AT modem, which was lying around from a no longer used PC. Solaris will as you surmised use AT commands, so you don't actually need to know anything about the hardware, other than that it is connected to a serical port.

If you wnted to be sure that you are seeing the modem, you could connect it and use tip to manually send a few at commands to make sure the modem responds correctly.
