Re: Modem doesn't respond

I had the same problem. It turned out I was trying to use a "Win" modem which is apparently generally not supported in Linux
My problem went away when I installed a second USR "non-Win" modem. While I still have some configuring to do, it's clear I now get dial tone and dial out to my provider
Check the model of your modem for the telltale "win" nomenclature

Subject: Modem doesn't respond

I have an internal 56k v90 USRobotic fax modem connected in Windows to COM2 and in Linux to ttyS1. It is working in Windows, but in Linux I always get a message saying that the modem does not respond.
Do you know how to solve this problem?
I tried on RedHat 6.1, Corel Linux, and Debian 2.1 and I always get the same message.
TIA - Pee
