    Looking for a modem to modem terminal program with these features:

    - autodialer a list of numbers at a given time
    - automated scripting (wait for a string, send a string, wait for a string, send a string...)
    - logging of that information to a text file (I can parse later on). Preferably a different file for each session and/or each separate section (after each send string, open a log file, when the wait string is seen, close the file).
    - free/shareware is better but if it does the job I'll buy it if it's trialware
    - custum init strings for the modem

    Would also be helpful if it could log each session that it receives a call from (ie waits until 1am to dial but in the meantime it sits there waiting for a connection, answers it and logs the information sent to it).

    Thanks :bigthumb:

    LCOM was the FREAKING BOMB in the BBS days.

    So many features, it blew ANYTHING and EVERYTHING away. I'll see if I can find my copy. It's freeware.

    :cool: If I had my 64 around still I could do it with it. Just need a cassette player for the IBM to read it back :rofl:

    PS It's got run on a W2K machine (maybe 98 if I'm desperate).

    I'm thinking Telix might be a good fit. I remember its scripting language had some punch. You could create a script to handle the autodialing and I pass off a connection to another script. Or you could set it up to auto dial and associate a script to each number. You have full control of the init strings. As for logging, it has whats called a capture file - but for this feature I believe its all or nothing. If you associate a script to the number, then I think the script can handle the capturing (either turn it on or it might be able to capture and let you write to disk). Its been a while since I've used it. Its free/shareware and its a DOS app.
