The 1660 was actually unable to dial, but used the sid to generate the tones necessary to dial. The audio jack is an audio in, which is buffered directly out to the phone line. The 1670 was really the first modem which was able to dial (tone) on its own. If you dont have the cable for the 1660, it can be used as a pulse dialer, just like the older modems would (except for the 1600, which used the connector from the handset, hi tech accoustic coupler technology). The 1650 was the first auto answer modem. Does anyone still have the dos version of Punter protocol, or Midwest protocol? I used to have them when I ran my BBS years ago..
