Is anyone aware of software or shareware that would allow making and receiving landline calls thru XP Pro SP2? I have an LSI soft modem that pull voice mails from Comcast w/ good sound quality. TIA,Jim

Skype might do what you want.
My understanding though is that both people have to be using it.
In the beginning there was the command line.

Skype to Skype is free, calls to regular phones from Skype are charged 2.3 cents per minute within continental US.
