Modem wedged help?
I have one of our Multitech MT2834ZPX modems configured for adaptive answer
support, having just set this support up last Thursday. On Saturday,
after dialing in unsucessfully (see log below--note exit
status of mgetty) the modem was reported
as wedged. I turned off and turned on the power to the modem this
morning and all is well again. My questions are:
1. (vague, I know) Why would the modem wedge?
2. Is there anything else I could have done to restore service besides
power cycling the modem?
3. I'm using mgetty to handle incoming data calls (v 1.0.0)--although
it worked fine for the first two days, could mgetty be part of the problem?
OS: RH Linux, release 4.1 (vanderbilt), kernel 2.0.27 on an i486
Modem Firmware version (from ATI1 command): 0022
Apologies if this has been dealt with before, but I've been unable to
access the Hylafax web page since Friday--what's up with that?
