Re: [hylafax-users] R: Invalid Dialing Command

As I metioned in my initial email, restarting the modem fixes the problem, and I also suspected it might be a hardware issue.

That being said, my next question be a stupid one, but before I go out and spend money, is there a modem that is considered "the best" for use with hylafax.

Try to restart modem (I have no fantasy...) or to replace it with someone similar.

Oggetto: [hylafax-users] Invalid Dialing Command

Hi There

I am running Hylafax 4.1.8 on a Redhat 7.3 machine with a US Robotics 56K faxmodem.
The problem I am having is that the hylafax server(which is sending faxes only, but am still running faxgetty) will run for days/weeks without a problem and then all of a sudden faxes start failing with the following trace in the log:

Jul 27 09:11:33.29: [28927]: DIAL 0392531079
Jul 27 09:11:33.29: [28927]: <-- [15:ATDT0392531079\r]
Jul 27 09:11:33.42: [28927]: --> [5:ERROR]
Jul 27 09:11:33.42: [28927]: SEND FAILED: JOB 448 DEST 0392531079 ERR Invalid dialing command
Jul 27 09:11:33.42: [28927]: <-- [5:ATH0\r]
Jul 27 09:11:33.66: [28927]: --> [2:OK]
Jul 27 09:11:33.66: [28927]: SESSION END

And from then on ALL subsequent faxes fail with the same error. I have found that by simply turning the modem off and then on again, this problem is fixed and faxes are sent successfully again. I have swapped the modem with another of the same type, but that does not seem to help.

Any help would be appreciated
