Convert landline telephone call and transmit over network?
I wish to convert an incomming call on one computer on my network and answer it on a second computer in the same network. The incomming call on the first computer will be received by a standard 56k internal modem. The software I'm looking for should be able to transmit this call over the network to the second computer so that a user can answer it there (not with a standard phone line, perhaps a headset or bluetooth wireless headset) Any ideas on this setup? Thanks guys for the answer, but as to the VOIP gateway, will I need to purchase additional hardware or can software on that computer simply use the internal modem to accept the analog signal and convert to IP for use on the network? I doubt I'll have latency issues or bandwidth problems in the network as it's a simple setup with not more than 4 pc's on the network (only 2 will be involved)
