You want some data? I'll transmit it to your machine. If it's coming in too fast, you tell me to wait so you can catch up. The protocol for doing this is called a handshake, and it usually takes place over a pair of wires on the serial port's RS-232 interface. The computer uses one of the wires to stop or start the transfer of data from the modem, and the modem uses the other wire to start or stop transfer from the computer. The wires used are called CTS and RTS.
