Problem with Modem communication:

Problem with Modem communication:

Problem with Modem communication:


Requirement:  I want to send numeric message to pager.

For that I have developed an application in VC++. My application takes pager number as input and dials that number through my local modem. After establishing the connection I am getting a message like “Enter numeric message after beep”.

1)    How can I find whether connection is established or not?
2)    Is there any way that I can determine if the remote modem picked up the phone call?
Is there anyway that I can determine if the remote modem simply picked up the phone call ?
I tried to read “CONNECT” message but I am not getting that message.

3)    After establishing the connection how can I send numeric message?

I know after establishing the connection mode will goes to command mode and we can send any data. But I don’t know how to send data in C++.

I used ATDT and number for dialing modem.

If any body knows about how to fix this one please let me know.
