Initialising modem

Initialising modem

Post by Martin Gregor » Thu, 21 May 1998 04:00:00


I find that ppp-on (which runs pppd & chat) can't correctly initialise
my modem, yet minicom can.  So to get a ppp session up, I have to run
minicom, then quit it & then run ppp-on.

Any ideas about how to tell pppd/chat what minicom knows?




1. faxgetty cannot initialize modem

The system is overflooding /var/log/messages with the following
message and several ?modem wedged.. entries after installing and
setting up the Hylafax faxserver and setting up faxgetty:

Sep 16 18:59:16 isrout FaxGetty[2779]: Error parsing "+FTM" query
response: "OK"

It looks as the faxgetty is expecting another response from the modem
than the standard ?OK. The modem (Elsa Microlink 56k) itself is
working well. I can operate it with minicom and I have reduced the
baud rate to 19200.

Any Help welcome,
greetings Mark
