Thank you for the advice on WinDump. However it does not detect the adapter.
What you're saying about the device looking like a dial up adapter rings
true... the thing is a phone at its heart.
I'm not following the part about opening the adapter for generic dialup
and vpn capture. Could you share some more insight?
