Recently I've been learning about how to get my Atari 800 online and I believe I know what I need now; an Atari 850 interface, a CX-87 serial cable, and a Lantronix MSS-100 with a null modem adapter (or a Wifi232 if I could find one). After thinking about it though what if I could get an even more nostalgic experience and use a real dial-up modem to connect to a BBS over the internet without actually doing so over the phone (I have a landline but that would mean long distance charges).
Is there is a way to use an actual vintage modem and trick it into thinking it is dialing up over the phone but actually have it connected to my router and make it dial up an internet address? I know the Lantronix simulates a modem but using a real one would be awesome. I searched around but didn't come up with much of anything so I don't know if this is even possible. I figured if anyone knew it would be someone here.
