Unfortunately, I can't immediately solve your problem, but I can give a
few pointers.  Look in /etc/rc.d/rc.serial at the serial line setup, and
maybe the manpage on setserial.  Also, the serial-HOWTO is very useful.  
All are on sunsite mirrors.
Hope this is more helpful than frustrating, and good luck!

1. Faxing with USR Sportster 28K8?


I've just bought myself a 28.8K US Robotics Sportster which I'm quite pleased about. I was
looking around the extra-stuff that comes with slackware and I found netfax which is a Fax
server (surprisingly enough). I got it to compile properly and everything seems fine, except
I can't send or receive faxes...

Now I've narrowed it down (I think) to the modem being only Class 2.0 rather than just plain
Class 2 and doesn't support the Fax Control commands. I wondered if anyone has got this beast
to work with a fax server under Linux. I know it can do it under DOS because there was a
grotty little book and a disk with lots of pictures about how to send and receive faxes.

Anyway. If you've got it to work or if you've got any info to hand about the different
standards so I could have a go myself I'd be very interested.

Thanks in advance,
