when it doesn't work, it seems that the ATDT command is not echoed back 
to the 'chat' process. It is quite possible that the device used by the 
dialing program is not the good one. If your dialing program was 
configured to use the '/dev/modem' device, please try to use the 
'/dev/ttySHCF0' device instead.

If it doesn't work, since you seems to be using a rather old version of 
the HCF PCI driver, you could try with the latest one we provide at:


It's normal that the HCF modules are quite big since a lot of work must 
be done by the driver instead of the modem hardware in the case of a 
controller less (HCF) modem.
