It seems that 'AT&F' will initialize,

for a complete list of 'AT' commands.

There was no noticeable change, and it still won't answer when called. I'm not that good with AT commands.. and from what I've looked at I don't know if I can manipulate the string to answer when dialled... does that make sense?

Use 'ATS0=1' to get the modem to auto-answer
after '1' ring.
Set 'ATS0=0' to disable Auto Answer Mode.

The IBM dialin box is really a Shiva device.  Go to www.shiva.com for the latest and greatest modem strings.

Until the modem answers the incoming call,
it cannot tell whether an incoming call
is "voice" or "fax" or "modem".

Why don't you hook the modem up to a PC Isssue the correct AT command to perform the task, eg: AT "xy"&W which writes to firmware and hook it back up ?? the &w part is very important !!!
(as you "listening" to me jmcclell ! -hic, hic)

If the script is not doing it then it is highly likely doing it in this fashion will sole you problem....., as obviously the script is not issuing the correct command, so it should not be over written.

Well I hope it does for bouth or sake !!! want another RUSKIE, (Hic)???

Most "modem-initialization-strings" are designed to be brief,
i.e., one of 'ATZ' or 'AT&F' or 'AT&F1' will work for 99%
of all modems, when using the modem to "originate" a call.
Add a short string to tell the modem to "answer" a call.
Note that the speed of the modem usually isn't a factor, here;
the same string usually works for a company's 14.4, 28.8, and 56K modems.

Well, isn't that special?

Can you tell what you tried, i.e., dialed the number
with an ordinary telephone, and then heard no
(or one or two or ten) "rings",
While you were doing this, did any of the lights on the modem "flash" ?

Does the modem work, if you use it in the "normal" way,
i.e., to initiate a call to an ISP ?

Use 'ATS0=1' to get the modem to auto-answer after '1' ring.
The 'S0' register is a fairly "standard" register,
across all different modems -- it's called "compatibility".
