Unfortunately, I feel the experts, with what time they do have to devote to 
HylaFAX, are busy trying to figure out the code . . . this list is not haunted 
by ITU types, and nobody's willing to speak authoritatively about RTN . . .

Harald, can you get us a clear statement which supports your feelings on how 
HylaFAX should behave in the case of RTN neg?

This is definitely true. I recommend cell operators buy Multitechs and save 
themselves the grief usually. It's possible that they just work out of the box 
because of a good config file, whereas the stock config file for the ZyXeLs 
may have a problem. I am not in a position to tell, as I only have MT modems.

I make no guarantees, since I don't understand what's causing yours . . . but feel it is likely.
