Ring Back
  • Procedure where connection to the computer requires two calls. The first, which usually is only one ring, alerts the modem, which will not answer unless the ringing stops for some period of time (typically 30 seconds). This allows the phone to be answered by the computer when appropriate and still be used for normal voice communications. (BBD;)
