possible to use a modem (rj-11) to talk to a serial device?
I was wondering if it were possible to talk to a serial device with a 56k modem?
As far as I can tell, both use UART, both are serial devices, so I don't see why this wouldn't work? If I got or made a RJ-11 to Serial adaptor would this actually work through minicom?
The reason why I ask is I have a notebook that still has a modem that is fully functional in linux and I also have a fully managed dell switch (powerconnect 5324) instead of buying a USB to Serial adaptor (that always never works correctly) would it be possible to interface with my switch using my 56k modem?
