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?


Help much appreciated.

Not for linux. However you could always try 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:

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.
