This method of connection is suggested if you do not have or do not want to use a land line phone for communicating through the dialer. You will need a USB headset to plug into your computer if you use this connection type as it eliminates the need to use a phone.
To use this connection type some users have reported issues with 3rd party anti virus software such as Mcaffe and Norton. If you experience any issues we suggest you only use the Windows firewall and disable or uninstall the 3rd party anti virus.
