Faxstat uses the file hyla.conf for its configuration.  Just add
the line

Host: <name of your computer>

to hyla.conf and you will not get this error.

Forget for now about faxstat.

After you start HylaFAX, check the system logs to see if faxgetty
is actually communicating with the modem.  This should be very
clear from the log messages.  If there is a problem, that should
be indicated as well.
