Toshiba PLC users can expand their remote diagnostics and remote programming capabilities
by using Hayes
compatible modem communications over the Public Switched Telephone
Network with standard analog phone lines and standard modems. Please note that "analog" line
means a normal dial-in dial–out phone line similar to the ones that you have at home (i.e., about
48Vdc open circuit voltage with about 110Vac ring voltage). This does not include the digital
phone lines in most offices that use modern digital PBX systems. Plugging a modem directly into
one of these digital office lines may destroy the modem.

Hayes compatible modem will work. Here is the list of equipment that you need for modem
communications with the PLC's programming ports:
Accessories For T2E/T2N Modem Communications (with programming port):
PC Side:
a standard "straight-through" 9-25 pin RS-232 serial cable
a
9600 baud external modem.
PLC Side:

    If you are using a T1, remember to attach the null-modem module to the modem’s RS-232 cable. Also, in the T1 version 1.2 as well as the Super T1-40, register SW038 is the Computer Link Response Delay setting which can be used with the default setting of 30 (for a 300 ms delay) or can be lowered if needed.

    If you have one of these PLCs and would like to use modem communications, you must use a modem that supports odd parity. This will apply if you have a T1 with firmware version earlier than 1.2, or any of the T2 series that is not a T2E/T2N. Most T3’s will also require an odd parity modem.
