Dialer connection with Phone Unit


Does anybody know how to configure the computer work with a phone base unit? I don't use Voip/or any over the internet calling. I just want to use an old fashioned phone connected to my laptop. I used to have a laptop configured to my existing phone however I don't have it any more and I am trying to use my new one to do this with a click of a button. When I click "phone contact" on my ACT! V.17 a box pops up saying that a call cannot be made. I figure I have to program my Windows dialer however the only information available online is for VOIP and I don't use VOIP. I use a regular landline.


I would greatly appreciate any help anyone can give me.
