please use the 'hsfconfig --info' command in a root shell to make sure 
that the HSF modem driver is correctly installed and configured on your 
system. Then, you should make sure that 'kppp' is configured to use 
either the '/dev/modem' or the '/dev/ttySHSF0' device. Alternatively, 
you could try with another dialing program to see if there is a difference.

If you require more assistance, please send to support at linuxant.com the 
output of 'dumpdiag'. Type the following in a root shell:

hsfconfig --dumpdiag

Just send us the generated file located in /tmp ('hsfdiag.txt').
It'll help us solve the problem.
