So this is a question about C-Kermit? Which version? The current version
soon to be replaced by 7.0:
Anyway, I'm not sure if this works. The best way to tell is to give
commands like like this:

If it shows modem signals then you can use WAIT to test for them, but
you have to omit the backslash -- just use "wait 1 cd".
If it says "Modem signals not available", that means it asked VMS for
the modem signals and VMS returned an error.

accomplish with "wait 1 cd"? Is this part of a dialing sequence? If so,
did you know that you can just use the DIAL command? All of this is
explained in the manual:
