please look at this message generated by the 'hsfconfig --info' command:
The /dev/modem alias (symlink) points to /dev/ttyS1
If you use the '/dev/modem' device with your dialing program, it is
normal that it does not work since a physical serial device (ttyS1) will
be used and this is why it is found but you have no answers from the AT
You could either configure your dialing program to use the
'/dev/ttySHSF0' device or use the 'hsfconfig --serial' command in a root
shell to fix the '/dev/modem' symbolic link.
