Re: Large number of errors with Hylafax and ZyXEL Omni modem

Hi Shuvam,
I had a quick look at your config, i'm not super familiar with Zyxel's but
nothing looked obviously wrong.  

I perhaps would remove or alter the LocalIdentifier line to make it your
phone no only, but i imagine this would only upset a small percentage of
fax machines.  Also it's just a personal thing but it would be much better
if you were using /dev/ttySX rather than /dev/modem.

Perhaps you could get a spare serial card and try that(they are fairly
cheap) to remove the possibility that your motherboard serial ports are
faulty.  Also if you know someone else with the same model modem perhaps
you could substitute to ensure that is not at fault.  You just want to make
sure that there are no hardware problems before you start looking at the
software - otherwise there are just too many variables to figure out what
is going on.

Hylafax has been shipping with the Zyxel config file for well over a year
now, i am finding it hard to believe that it works this badly.
