If you're using the MT5634ZPX it won't return "RING1" or RING2"
It will return a sequence of numerical data for the actual lengths of
the rings/silences that make up the cadence of the distinctive ring.
B.T.W. you can see what these look like if you have open minicom while
the phone is ringing.
So replace the last two lines above with the following:
DistictiveRings:	V-20,F-8-4-8
DRingOn:		DRON=
DRingOff:		DROF=

I'm slightly guessing the distictive ring cadences you're using but if
you're in the U.S. its probably correct for the first and second
distinctive rings.  You can always verify it by looking with minicom, or
in the logs with debugging sufficiently turned up.

There should be some documentation for this somewhere in 'man hylafax-
