Re: Totally Stumped...

Hi Andy,
Have a look at http://www.trump.net.au/~rjc/hylafax/usr.php it explains
some of the problems with getting the Sportster model working.

>From your description of the problem you have a more recent 56K model which
should work if you add the line
Class2NRCmd:            AT+FNR=1,1,1,0  # setup status reporting  command
to your modems config file, this stops the modem reporting bad frame errors.

Note you may also still get a significant number of DCS errors when sending
faxes, this problem as related to the Sportster modem far as i am aware has
not as yet being solved.

Now Shuvam:

In Australia one local phone call costs A25c times 100 per day = $A25
A new modem a USR Courier which is known to work costs in the region of $A300.

>From above after ~2 weeks it is cheaper to buy a new modem than continue
running your current system.
