Now I'm thinking that there are really two phases / modes of 
communications:  1) computer to modem commands, and 2) computer to 
computer via modem connection data.

I think my previous statement applies to #2.  I can see the value in #1 
being more liberal in what it recognizes and accepts.

But, I'd still be surprised if the following would work for #2.


Would A and B be able to transfer data between each other with different 
(local) settings?
