someone pointed out that I was not clear enough in what I wanted in my last

I need to provide a central bank of modems that a number of Win 9x users
can use, rather than placing modems on each PC.

I am lead to believe that this can be done with Windows, and I wonder if
anyone has any traces of the actual protocol used?  Does it simply use the
IOCTLs that are part of the SMB protocol for controling the remote device,
while treating it essentially as a file otherwise?
