JSI Tip 1546. How do I issue modem commands?

The general syntax for issuing a modem command is:

@echo \{AT_Modem_Command\} > COMx:

where \{AT_Modem_Command\} is an valid modem command string and COMx: is the COM port that the modem is configured for.

Example - To issue an ATZ to my USR Courier on COM2:

@echo ATZ > COM2:

You can do this at a CMD prompt or in a batch file.
