I have a customer that is using a device from US Netcom to call utility customers and warn them of impending service interruptions. Even though it attaches via a serial port they won't release the protocol and require the use of a PC. This makes it a manual process to load the list (file not individual numbers) and it only prints the results report so it has to be manually re-entered into the customers. US Netcom finally provided some APIs to the PC programs but this still requires a PC and VB programs. I would like to find something that can interface directly to the iSeries via serial or maybe even TCP. They only use one phone line so it doesn't need to be a very large system. Roger Vicker, CCP
