With a qualifier, I beg to differ with you. I failed to mention (Rather
importantly and reminded of it by Mitch.... You do need at least ISDN
Bri. X2 requires a digital circuit to run over.) But the Courier I-Modem
will host a connection using X2 Server mode or X2 Symetrical modes.I run
an NT Server with a Courier I-modem V-Everything and serve up an X2
connection at 44kb everytime I dial into my machine remotely with my
Sportster X2. Now would I recommend this for production?? No.. no one in
there right mind would but it works for me to remotely access my server
for online maintenence.

Not to start a pissing contest, just wanted to correct myself. Sorry for
the misrepresentation.
