Here is how you do it modem to modem. If you have an ISDN adapater with
software that simulates a modem it should work exactly the same ISDN to

Set both Trumpet winsocks to compatible settings (e.g., both to SLIP,
same numbers for block sizes). Make up a (different) IP number for each
winsock. Enter this fake IP number and fake name in the "hosts" file in your
winsock directory: adam.people.earth.org

Setup one winsock by manually or automatically dialing in the same
commands you use to set up with a modem, e.g.



and then one more command


And hit the ESCAPE key to enable SLIP.

This modem will then me in answer mode.

On the other, just call it up.




When connected hit the escape key to enable SLIP.

Then just type in the fake IP number of the other guy into the
"connect" window to make a connection.
