Hello all, nubie alert. I recently was able to setup the war dialer ModemScan on my old Win XP eMachine, and have just been dialing known numbers like my cell phone to see what happens. When I dial out from my PC to my cell, my home phone number appears on my cell, when answered it is empty air with some very very faint beeping in the background. Now, I've never took it into consideration before, but was this always true when war dialing in the past? If you were war dialing from home that was the number that appeared to everyone in the dial list? I guess that's why going to some other location to war dial was the preferable thing to do? Or not calling locally either I suppose? I might be even using the wrong tool for just general old school war dialing, since it seems ModemScan is just that, a scanner for open modems, although it does give a log for BUSY, NO ANSWER, etc. I thought I had seen in some penetration test book that going into the Windows Modem options and putting *67 in the "dial for outside local calls" would hide the caller ID, but I've not had that happen so far in my experiments. Basically my question boils down to is, if you are going to war dial from home, then there's no means of hiding the fact that its your home phone number you are dialing from?
