Idea I've tried:  Investigate routing tables - if a route exists from inside
<-> outside that does NOT go through an identified system (firewall, most
likely) there is (or was) a IP route through there.  If was, recently since
the route hasn't dropped yet.

Just an idea.  Comments on it?

Subject: Modem detection without dialing

I am wondered if there is a product which can detect the existence of a
the need for the modem to be connected ?.  Specifically, in a LAN
can an
administrator/pen tester identify a modem through the network, rather than
through the telephone

Any thoughts would be appreciated.
