Problem with Dial-up connection

eatusing
This is my first time in here. I have question regarding dial-up connection between two(2) pc. I want those pc to be connected using dial-up connection, both pc has 56k modem PCI slot and running in WinXp Pro. I had already tested the lan card modem and its working coz I can connect to the internet thru dia-up connection. To be more precise with my question, I am trying to connect my PC1 to PC2 using dial-up connection (both pc had different phone numbers/direct lines), PC1 can dial PC2 and vice versa the problem is how can PC1 or PC2 answer/handshake with each other so they can both be connected using only those lan card modem? Is there any appliance, device or program that would make this connection happen? Note: I'm not using a Lease Line so external model like zyxel u-336s is not applicable. Thanks for the reply in advance.

    You need to enable the ability to Answer Calls on at least one of these computers. You have to also setup something like Z Modem to allow the two system to communicate as well.

    Sorry but it's now been years since I have done something like this so I'm not as familiar as some others may be with this procedure.

    I haven't used Dial up for about 8 years now so I've forgotten most of what is required here.

    Do you mean you want to connect the two computers(network) and shared 1 dial-up connection?

    On the computer you want to answer
    Goto
    Control Panel
    Network and Internet Connections
    Network Connections
    Create a new connection

    This will start the new connection Wizard
    Click
    Next
    Set up an advanced connection
    Next
    Accept incoming connections
    Next
    Click to tick your modem
    Next
    Next
    Click to allow the users you want to connect
    Next
    Next
    Finish

    The computer will now answer whenever the phone rings

    Thanks a lot...Hi guy's earlier this day the connection's between the two pc using dial-up network had been established.

    On each PC i just enabled and started automatic 'Routing and Remote Access' and also the 'Telephony'. It is under Control Panel, Administrative Tools, and Services.
