Re: 8.X config

My biggest problem is that I have 7.X servers out there that can not be
upgraded.  My Java client uses the 7.X protocol and adding a 8.X server
may hurt me.

I need on demand because I do not want the modem to stay dialed all the
time.  One option is to stay with 7.X and modify the program so it
manages the modem and only connects when the user is doing something.
It can then timeout on select() for 5m and if that timeout occurs it can
drop the line.  It makes my program a tad more complex but I wrote it
and I can make it do anything I want it to do :)
