Corrosion. Posted March 20, 2009 Share Posted March 20, 2009 I have been interested in DTMF tones and phone hacks since watching "History of Hacking Documentary" I learned about John Draper "captin Crunch" and about red boxing, blue boxing, etc. I understand alot of this stuff nolonger works but I'm still interested in it. I have a DTMF generator and I now use it to dial out simply because I can, I like it... I was wondering and had some ideas, I've looked into it but have had problems figuring it out. What I'd like to do... Use a cordless phone to connect my laptop to a dialup connection, I see this very very possible because dtmf tones will work over land lines and these cordless phones but.... I tried to connect a headset into our phone line, it has a volume switch on it, I noticed that turning the volume all the way up would cause the phone lines to be cut off thoughout the house but I could then use the line, my guess is I was pulling too much power from the line.. I also was unable to dial out using DTMF tones, I only had a 2 wire line to connect the head set, and weather I connected my mic or speaker I could not dial out, my guess is the two sets are for mic and speakers, so I'd need a 4 line cord correct? Now on my laptop I'd like to be able to do this without modifying the cordless phone, so what would I have to hookup on my laptop in order for it to listen in on the tones and communicate? I mean I'll have to wire up something into my laptops modem and it'll have to be able to communicate both in and out. (sort of how connections were made in the movie wargames) and finally, I know that a cellphone does not allow you to play DTMF tones into the mic, it just dosn't work to dial out, but could I possible manually dial the dialup number and then once the computer has dialed the number (it wouldnt be connect yet) then I could then wire the cell phone into the computers modem and then could the computer talk to the cell phone? I'm thinking it would work if the connection was dialed manually first. and yes I do understand that I could just use bluetooth and a data plan etc.. I'm experimenting and just trying to see if its possible, I want to do it this way.. I'll take any help/suggestions you've got...... In the mean time I'll keep on researching Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
