You know, I hate to say it; but sometimes there's just _no_ replacement for
a decent comm-server... If you're dealing with regular modems, then you should
be able to find a 32 or 64 port comm-server for free in a junk-pile somewhere
or maybe for $20... 

Sorry I don't have any real answers for you.
