Sportster 56K Internal in Linux / PPP

I have a Sportster 56K Int. Modem (not winmodem) that is set up on Com 2 / Irq 3 / IO 0x2F8 and it works fine in WinNT and Win95.  However, in Linux, I can get it to dial in Minicom / Seyon, and with my PPPScript, but after the modem screechs back and forth at the other end mine just hangs up.  I use the standard AT&F1 init string, and get an OK with it. The ISP is a 56Flex dialup, my modem is X2....Any ideas?

Umm,, to my understanding, K56Flex and 56K X2 aren't compatible with each other at all, there are settings I think that will let them connect at 33,600 max. speed....

Yes but even in seyon / minicom i set the port to 38400 8N1 and still get them results.   The modem wroks fine in other OS's, so it makes no sense why it would hang up after handshaking in linux.  I have tried numerous INIT strings in my pppscript, to no avail :).

Try AT&fx A friend told me this one and I have never seen it fail..... EVER...

If that does, try turning off error correction and compression protocols. This might be the problem that your server doesn't support these protocols.....
