Hmm... Do you succeffully call from your UNIX to *anywhere* at all?
What you are describing looks more like improperly configured port/modem.
Say, the modem set to track the port speed after the connection speed,
which would not work.

Please do not send the log to the mailing list, where many unwilling people

it will be little help.
