Editor's review

Previously used data centric application essentially used direct modem connections for exchanging the data amid Client and Servers. The data transfer through such modems is not secure, which makes it easy for the hackers to intercept your data through the phone line scanner that works remotely. To have a secure mode of data transfer today the earlier applications have been replaced by TCP/IP networks. With TCP/IP networks, you can use Virtual Private Networking (VPN), SSH or other safe tunnel assuring privacy and security. But, the problem arises when you need to get a new software that usually cost much on your pocket. Now, you can try out Software Modem 2.0.2 which is a cheap and competent solution for the purpose. It forms virtual modems, which use internet or local network, and can be easily accessed by applications requiring direct modem connections for their functioning.

Software Modem 2.0.2 application requires you to follow a simple process for setting up the virtual modem. The process begins with adding the virtual modem by filling in the necessary information. You need to select the Virtual serial port like COM 4 from the drop-down menu, and enable features for accepting “incoming calls” on TCP-port. Further, while connecting to virtual modem on the other PC, with mentioned options also enable connecting to remote address for all outgoing calls and enter the remote computer name/IP address and TCP-port details. Click ‘Ok’ and the program would install the modem, completing which the virtual modem is shown listed on the program screen. Now you can easily transfer data through virtual modem, and these can be integrated with your application. One of the best features of virtual modem application is ‘Address Book’, which supports translating phone numbers transparently into IP addresses. Further, you need not modify phone numbers in communication programs but just insert them in Address Book.

The Software Modem 2.0.2 application saves you from buying hardware modems and installing extra phone line, giving you high speed in comparison to hardware modems. The application is given 4 rating points for its easy-to-set features and fantastic functioning capability.

Publisher's description

There are many old data-centric applications that, for historical reasons, use direct modem connections to exchange data between Client and Server. Nowadays, local and global TCP/IP networks have made the direct modem connection obsolete. Here's why: When you use a direct modem connection, you need to have a physical modem installed on each PC that needs to exchange data. You also must use a physical phone line. This makes the line busy and may even be costly, if long distance calls are required. Modem transfers are also not secure. A hacker doesn't even need to have an access to your phone line. Your data can be easily intercepted with a remote phone line scanner. In a TCP/IP network, on the contrary, you can use the power of a VPN (Virtual Private Networking), SSH or any other secure tunnel to ensure privacy and security. There are a lot of reasons to move from a direct modem connection to TCP/IP networking. But, how can you do this without investing thousands into new software? Virtual Modem from FabulaTech provides a cheap and effective solution. This program creates virtual modems that use your local network or the Internet instead of a physical phone line. How does it work? The virtual modems are accessible to all the applications that work through a direct modem connection. Setup is no different from setting up a physical modem. You simply select a virtual COM port in your communication application settings. The application can control the virtual modem directly by sending AT commands or with TAPI (MS Windows Telephony API). Thus, Virtual Modem should work out-of-the-box for all your communication programs. One of the very useful Virtual Modem features is its "Address Book". The Address Book allows you to transparently translate phone numbers into IP addresses. You don't even have to change the phone numbers in your communication programs. Just put them into your Address Book.
