communication through modem and using sockets
im in the need to implement the following scenario.
there will be several PC's with each having a modem and a telephone
connection. No PC has the internet access. All PC's should have the
ability to connect to any other PC by just dialing the corresponding
telephone number. After connected, they need to communicate
using the TCP/IP protocol. ( i.e i need to use Sockets in the
communication.). PC's will have Windows Me/98 as the O/s.
(this is similar to what happens with hyperterminal, but i think the
difference is the protocol used in the communication.)
Is this scenario possible? Please give me a starting point.

Such a thing is certainly possible using TCP/IP and PPP with demand
dialing. But as this is really a feature of a particular
implementation, rather than a general feature of the protocols, you'll
need to consult with a user's manual or newsgroup associated with the
product you're trying to use ("Windows Me/98").
