So you basically want PRTG to send SMS over network to a Win7 client that has the modem connected? Doesn't that defeat the whole purpose of using a GSM modem to send notifications when the network is actually down? :)

Anyway, you might want to use PowerShell's Invoke-Command feature to execute commands on the Windows 7 machine and execute the batch command line from the other thread within it's ScriptBlock. Or use PSExec as an alternative.
