As far as I know all modems with a DB25 connector will work via a 9 to
25 pin converter. The reason this can work is that even with a DB25
connector only a few pins are actually used. The RS-232 standard has
definitions for most of those pins, but only several are required.

This was answered correctly by someone else I believe.
