Here is my plroblem in short.......

I'm using a external Rockwell 56K modem on Freebsd 5.1. When starting up, the modem is 
quiried by freebsd (the DT light comes on just before the Login prompt is displayed), 
if I do a ps -aux it seems if the modem is up

ns3# ps -aux
root 476 0.0 1.4 1232 832 ?? I 11:26AM 0:00.03 /usr/libexec/getty std.9600 ttyd0

but when I run cu -lttyd0 the connection just hangs

ns3# cu -lttyd0
Connected

At this point I cannot do any thing and have to cancel cu out of a different session.

I also have the following messages in /var/log/message

Feb 2 11:25:52 ns3 kernel: unknown: <PNP0303> can't assign resources (port)
Feb 2 11:25:52 ns3 kernel: unknown: <PNP0501> can't assign resources (port)
Feb 2 11:25:52 ns3 kernel: unknown: <PNP0700> can't assign resources (port)
Feb 2 11:25:52 ns3 kernel: unknown: <PNP0401> can't assign resources (port)
Feb 2 11:25:52 ns3 kernel: unknown: <PNP0501> can't assign resources (port)

I'm trying to setup the modem to use as a fax modem with Hylafax.

Extech
