As it happens, I found one for sale online, and it arrived this morning, so I now need to hook that up to one computer and PABX extension, while connecting the modem to test to another computer and extension, to get them to talk to each other. There doesn't, however, appear to be a way to set the WS2000 to auto-answer, so I assume it will be a matter of dashing between extensions to set up the communication manually.
