Know if someone is calling on a Dial Up Connection

Hi all!

Does anyone know if there is a free program which will notify you or hang up the modem when someone is calling whilst on a Dial up connection? So that my freind can safely use the internet without the worry of losing a business phone call?

Thanks :)

If you have a V92 modem and your ISP supports it, this may also help:

At the last count, 1stNet were the only ISP to offer V92 'Modem on Hold'.

Call waiting is required for all these applications. On its own, however, some modems see the beep as noise, and will drop the connection.

Re Call Waiting.

I can't see any other way in which such utilities could work.

Are you agreeing with my 13:57?

Yes..:-)

Is that a surprise?
