The data is compressed. The signal is the signal, which in a way is
compressed, but that's to get you 14.4, 28.8, etc. (as opposed to an
'uncomressed' modem, maybe that's 300 baud!). V.42 is data compression.
Actually, keep it on all the time, as it's smart enough to realize when
it's not doing any good, and 'escape'. So it doesn't hurt. But to get
it's advantages, you have to have a higher baud rate settting between the
modem and the computer. With video/audio data like CU-seeme, it's useless,
but for other peripheral data, who knows?
