Hylafax HELP... rcv OK/send DIES ??

Post by Eliot Sabath-Levi » Mon, 06 Jan 1997 04:00:00

I'm hoping someone can shed some light on this...

Thanks to a LOT of help, I (mostly) have Hylafax working on my Dell machine.

It RECEIVES just fine, but when it tries to TRANSMIT, it dies with a PHASE
B transmit error.  When I look in the log files, everything looks great
until it starts gabbing with the receiving machine, and then I get a SLEW
of control codes spitting out.

It looks a lot to me like this is a problem with my modem initialization
string... but wouldn't that also cause reception to fail?  I'm using one
of the new USR voice-fax modems (33.6 I think).  It's probably pnp, although
who knows?

Anyone have a clue about this?

Please reply via e-mail... over the last week or so my news server seems t
have deleted the .comp.os.linux groups several times... so I am not convinced
of reliability... besides
which I'm using a new newsreader that I don't have quite configured yet...  :)

Thank you!

1. send/rcv-q numbers with nfs strange...


here's a couple of lines from a recent netstat -a running pl12 and SLIP to a

Active Internet connections
Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address          Foreign Address        (State)
udp       -1 -7842048 *:631                  womble:nfs        ESTABLISHED

Some *wierd* numbers => overflow somewhere....?

This is in a kernel I have re-built, but its basically the pl12 kernel with
Linus' memory patches and the drivers I need.

Any ideas?
