Article #78 (419 is last): Newsgroups: freenet.sci.comp.atari.questions From: visitor Subject: COMPUTER MODEMS Date: Sun Jul 30 09:12:01 1989 HOW DOES ONE INTERLOCK HIS COMPUTER MODEM TO A LARGER AND MORE COMPLEX SYSTEM? THANK YOU! ANSWER ** Answered by JOHN SUCHY (aa271) on Sat Mar 14 11:19:04 1987 ** The rate of data transfer is called "baud rate". If the larger system is set up to receive modem calls and your modem's baud rate is the same as the rate on the larger system's modem, they automatically work with each other. To talk with a friend by modem, one of you has to have a terminal program which includes an "answer mode".Leave us another question if you are interested in this technique. As a third possibility, if you are considering setting up a "larger system" and want other people to call you, your best bet is to buy a Bulletin Board program. As of this time most people I know like BBS Expressfor the Atari XL/XE line. Your Co-sysop, John E. Suchy Thanks for asking.
