All external modems are not fully interchangeable.  There are a few that
are shipped with whacked-out default configurations or, worse yet, have
buggy implementations of the AT command standard that must be worked

However, these rare.  Just plug your serial modem in and try it.  It will
almost certainly work.

They also are not external serial modems.
