Modem Not responding in RedHat Linux 9.0


I have my internal modem (Dax make 56K voice/fax), installed in Linux, with the driver downloaded from the website of daxnetwork.com

When I do query modem, it is giving succesfull response.

When I connect to terminal(modem terminal window), the cursor is blinking
but I am not able to type anything. I did this to check whether modem is installed properly.

Also when I tried to dial to internet through KPPP, it is giving message Modem Ready, then initializing modem. then it hangs there.

What may be the problem and how to fix it??

Thanks in advance

Lightbulb Which modem port u have set?

Which modem port u have selected? I mean /dev/ttyS0 or /dev/modem.
The Query Modem commands works in both situation but net only connects when u select modem prot as /dev/modem.
Hope this help.

I used /dev/sty0. let me try with /dev/modem. right now i am in windows. I will try after i close the connection.
But in the installation guide, it was mentioned to use /dev/sty1. But if I use that, it was not able to detect the modem. I will /dev/modem. and will reply.

Tried with /dev/modem. it does not work. Not responding to query also.
As per the installation guide, i have to select /dev/sty1. Then also the same problem.

At the same time if I select /dev/sty0, query modem is working fine. But when I dial after initializing modem, it never goes further. When I tried to connect to modem terminal. it gives message modem ready, but i am unable to type anything, though the cursor is there.

Can someone help me in this.

why not try to link /dev/sty1 as /dev/modem.
/dev/modem is just a common shortcut for modem's location.
you could do that by "ln -s /dev/sty1 /dev/modem", if it says errors do "rm -rf /dev/modem" first.

sajju262 - are you using Redhat 9 like the OP?

Redhat 9 is now very old and unsupported. I strongly recommend that you upgrade to a modern, supported version of Linux, such as Fedora Core 7. Fedora is the successor to Redhat community distros.

You will probably find that your problem goes away if you upgrade.
