What is my phone number??

What is my phone number??

What is my phone number??

  I am at a business that has serval phone lines and I am setting up one to hook into a modem for dialing into the modem to control a computer.  I have, nor anyone else has, an idea what the phone number is on the line that is by the computer.  I remember back in the old days there was a number you could HyperTerminal into and it would tell you what number you were calling from and a  line report.

   Anyone have such a number??


RE: What is my phone number??

Did you try to call the local exchange to see what that phone number is?  

I know what you are referring to as the number to call, but it is local to each exchange.

Plug an anolog phone into it and call a phone that has call display. Worked for me

RE: What is my phone number??

   Thanks for responding to my thread!!

    What I finally did was...  The office told me the phone lines, i.e. the numbers, that the company was paying for and I called each one untill a phone at that number (phone jack) rang.  Crazy eh??  But it didn't take to long.

Thanks again,
