efax question

I tried to send a fax overseas. It seems to work, but nevertheless gave
me an error message. I would like to fix it.
I use Casas' nice fax-script for his efax program.

First question: Does "Warning: timed out after waiting" means that efax
does not want to wait any more for the handshaking procedure after the
announcement (of a combined answering/fax machine)? How can I pass the
the option S7=120, which I found in the man page of efax, through the
Second question: What does FDT stand for? What means "Error: wrong
response after command:  +FDT"

1. fax or efax question concerning noise

When you say "the same machine" do you mean repetitive attempts to
dial *any* fax machine, or that this particular machine is giving you

I've used efax many times with no failures, so it sounds like it's a
bad phone line, or a bad modem.

BTW, you might look at www.efax.com, which has nothing whatever to do
with the free program efax.
