Calling from PC using POTS

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello all, I hope I have the right forum for this.

So here is the scenario:
I have to dial into a conference soon. I have the option of using a regular phone, but I'd like to use my PC if possible. I have my laptop hooked up to my landline, it can dial out just fine. (In fact I can call my cellphone with it using it's number as a calling option for a new connection.)
The thing is, well obviously, to call with your PC, I could just use VOIP, I have used VOIP hundreds of times with Skype, GoogleVoice and Yahoo.
However, I CANNOT use VOIP.
I HAVE to use my POTS line (landline).
There is no other option.

What I'm looking for is an application that I can run on my laptop (Win 7 x64) to use as a phone. And I need it to use my phone line. (Again, I cannot use VOIP).

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Windows 7 has one built in. Just hit your Start Menu and search for "dialer", you'll see Dialer.exe pop up. Choose your modem port and away you go!

In case you can't find it, Dialer.exe is in C:\Windows\System32
