Hi
CUSM does audio now on a PC and quit well. It turned out to be a problem
with full duplex handling on my half duplex sound blaster. After "setting"
it to half duplex, automaticaly by CUSM, you have to "manually" reset the
sound card (reboot the machine) for it to work. Sound is great, no
distortion on speech. I have not tried it yet on RS232, am still testing it
all out on my LAN, we all know it is sort of primitive, but hey for under
$200 in equipment I can SEE who I am talking to and talk for, almost, free
al over the world. You got to love that. After I got my reflector installed
I'll just use a small dedicated machine running Windows 3.11, as a telephone
on my linux box.
