init string
Before your modem will work, the computer must send it a set of arcane commands called a "modem initialisation string". The set of commands is different for every brand and model of modem and often for each different modem program as well. Almost certainly, you will need the help of a maven to figure these out for you. Happily, modem software usually comes with giant tables of init strings for hundreds of models of modem. If yours in on the list, you are in luck and can ignore them. One of the biggest advantages of the Internet, is once you have figured out to connect to you ISP (Internet Service Provider), you are connected to the world. You don’t need a separate modem init string for each place you call. In recent years Windows has learned to automatically configure the init strings of modems so this in no the headache it once was.
