vgetty and VOCP

Hi all,

I'm trying to setup answering machine on my pc. I have vgetty and VOCP installed, however the damn thing doesn't seem to work. I have an HCF type modem (Conexant chipset.) Here's an output from the vgetty.ttySHCF0 log file with the error:

01/04 02:57:02 CF0 check for lockfiles
01/04 02:57:02 CF0 locking the line
01/04 02:57:02 CF0 lowering DTR to reset Modem
01/04 02:57:03 CF0 send: \dATQ0V1H0[0d]
01/04 02:57:04 CF0 waiting for ``OK'' ** found **
01/04 02:57:12 CF0 send: ATS0=0Q0&D3&C1[0d]
01/04 02:57:12 CF0 waiting for ``OK''
01/04 02:57:12 CF0 found action string: ``ERROR''
01/04 02:57:12 CF0 init chat failed, exiting...: Invalid argument
01/04 02:57:12 ##### failed in mg_init_data, dev=ttySHCF0, pid=1635

What exactly does the error in the last 3 lines mean? If you need any other info let me know.

it means, your modem returned ERROR after the command...

check your modem manual to see which one of those commands isn't supported.
