The Anchor 6480 does not work with ANY terminal programs except
that which is provided in the box.  It is *NOT* a smartmodem like
the Commodore 1670.  You control the modem chip directly from the
user port, including bit banging touch tones and the switch hook.

No extra cables are needed.  I suggest you get a Hayes Compatible
Commodore 1670 for slightly more money.  That modem will work with
nearly all terminal programs (that support 1200 baud, that is).
It also comes with software (vt100 and vt52 packages) and a trial
offer from Q-Link. (biting my tongue)
