Actually, there is!!! But you need to use a third-party WinSock transport
software, i.e. Trumpet WinSock. There's a few members on this mailing list (my
self included) who have "tricked" both local and remote machines into seeing
each other as an ISP. One side would do the "AT A", and the other would do the
"AT X3 D" (as you listed). The only thing is that both sides would have to
manually dial and make this connection!

Good luck,
