Call Alerts While on-line


Hi All,

quick question, does anyone know of any software that exists that would alert me of an incoming call while I am using my dial-up connection. I have searched endlessly for it, anyone?

Thanks.

Help much appreciated.

Not for linux. However you could always try http://www.callwave.com/ and run it under wine. No garuntees however. Though if you are going to pay for callwave you might as well spend cash on a catch a call or the emerson switch because they are not dependent on software.

There's TuxCall: http://freshmeat.net/projects/tuxcall/.

It listens to the phone line and hangs up when it hears the call waiting beep. I think you need a sound card dedicated to TuxCall's use.
