eFax eFax-gtk help with handshake

Ok so I have installed my Hsf modem and hopefully recieved full suport through it from these instruction on this thread. then set up my efax-gtk using this thread
Now when ever i try to send a fax it will dial the number then i hear a series of beeps on my modem, I know that the number is working because i called it from my home phone and heard the fax machine handshake over my home phone but my modem will not start the handshake. Was wondering if there was anyone who could help also it wont even dail out to any phone number only get this beeping, and I know all the numbers I am trying aren't busy.
Socket running on port 9900
efax-0.9a: 09:52:50 opened /dev/ttySHSF0
efax-0.9a: 09:52:51 using hsfmodem- in class 1
efax-0.9a: 09:52:51 dialing T**********
efax-0.9a: 09:54:52 Error: dial command failed
efax-0.9a: 09:54:52 failed page /home/ademeda/Desktop/Work/brenntag1.pdf.001
efax-0.9a: 09:54:52 failed page /home/ademeda/Desktop/Work/brenntag2.pdf.001
efax-0.9a: 09:54:54 finished - unrecoverable error
this is what I get when I try if there is anything else i need to include for help just let me know, didn't include the number for obvious reasons
